The results of the British Prime Minister Elections (Britain PM Elections), which lasted for more than a month, were announced on Monday. The members of the Conservative Party (Conservative Party) favored Truss. Truss won against Sunak with a majority of more than 20 thousand votes. Out of the total votes cast, Sunak got 60,339 votes and Truss got 81,326 votes. With this, Liz Truss became the third woman to hold the office of Prime Minister of Britain. Before that, Theresa May and Margaret Thatcher were the only female Prime Ministers of Britain.
It is known that the battle between Rishi Sunak, who is of Indian descent, and Liz Truss in the election of British Prime Minister is fierce, but all the surveys show that she has more chances. True to the expectations of the surveys, Liz Truss has created a record as the third female Prime Minister to take the reins of Britain. If Rishi Sunak had won this election, he would have created history by becoming the first person of Indian origin to be elected Prime Minister of Britain. Mary Elizabeth Truss, who was elected as the new Prime Minister of Britain, was born on July 16, 1975.
However, Rishi Sunak took the lead initially after the election process started. He got the most support among the MPs. Foreign Secretary Truss has little support from Tory MPs. She came second in their poll. However, Truss’ lead has been increasing ever since party members started voting through online and postal ballot. The reason for this seems to be that Liz Truss stated that he would immediately reduce the tax burden if he comes to power.
Meanwhile, it seems that Liz Truss, who has been elected as the new Prime Minister of Britain, has already decided who should be in her cabinet (Liz Truss Cabinet). According to reliable sources, Kawasi Kwarteng, who is currently the Trade and Power Secretary, will be given the Finance Ministry, James Claverley, who held the Education Ministry in the Johnson Cabinet, will be given the Foreign Ministry, Government Attorney General Suella Braverman will be given the Home Affairs, and the current Defense Minister, Ben Wallace, will be given the same responsibilities. Former education minister Nadhim Zahvi is expected to be cabinet office minister, Therese Coffey as health minister and Jacob Rees Mogg as trade minister.
