Britain Next PM: Britain’s newly appointed Prime Minister Liz Truss resigned after a month and a half. It is now being said that the next Prime Minister of Britain can be appointed from October 28. That is, in a week Britain will get the next Prime Minister. According to media reports, three names are in the forefront for the post of the next Prime Minister of Britain. The first name among them is that of Rishi Sunak. Apart from him, the second name is of former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. At the same time, the third name is of Penny Mordent, who is a member of the current British cabinet.
Why only Rishi Sunak?
Rishi Sunak is the first and foremost to run for the post of the next Prime Minister of Britain. His claim is strong because all the predictions he made about Liz Truss’s promises in the election turned out to be true. He had expressed apprehensions about the UK economy, which appeared to be true and Liz Truss had to resign within 45 days.
Apart from this, Sunak was the first choice because Sunak got more votes in the voting of MPs before Liz was elected. When the Conservative Party members made the final decision, Liz Truss won.
Sunak did a great job in the pandemic
Apart from this, it is being said that Sunka has been instrumental in getting the country out of the economic slowdown during the Corona period. He not only uplifted the country but also made all sections happy. Apart from this, he helped the hotel industry with the ‘Eat Out to Help Out’ scheme of more than 15 thousand crores during the Corona period itself.
Rishi also gave relief to the tourism industry during the Corona wave. He had given a package of 10 thousand crores to this industry. Along with this, an assistance amount of two lakh rupees was given to the employees and the business class.
It is believed that Rishi Sunak has the support of more MPs than Liz. For the time being, he along with his supporters is busy in the next strategy. According to reports, Sunak got 137 votes while Truss got 113 votes in the final voting of MPs.
Boris Johnson and Penny Mordent also included in the race
Former Prime Ministers Boris Johnson and Penny Mordent are also in the race to become Prime Minister after Rishi Sunak. It is being said that Boris Johnson may return after the resignation of Liz Truss. Although he gave a speech in the US in the second week of October, he did not say anything on the current crisis in Britain. Also, his previous tenure is considered very good.
At the same time, Penny Mordent is a member of the current British cabinet. Mordent gave a tough fight to Liz Truss in the run-off. She has been the former Minister of Defense and Trade of Britain and she also has a very good image among the public. After leaving the post of Truss, his name has started being discussed again.
What happened that made Liz Truss resign?
About six weeks ago, Liz Truss was elected Britain’s new prime minister, replacing Boris Johnson. He had to resign from his post just 45 days after taking oath as PM. Actually, Liz Truss was the target of her own party’s MPs for her economic policies.
In the mini budget, the Truss government cut the tax, but the middle class was given a rebate of 19% while the rich were given up to 45%. As a result, the British pound reached a 50-year low against the dollar. The Central Bank has to pay the liabilities.
However, amidst increasing ruckus and pressure after the mini-budget, PM Truss sacked his Finance Minister Quasi Quarteng and then reversed his own decision. Which sent an even more wrong message to the public.
Liz remained PM for the shortest days, made this record
Liz Truss’s tenure was only one and a half months. She was the Prime Minister for the shortest time in the history of Britain, which is a new record. Earlier this record was in the name of George Canning. He served as the Prime Minister of Britain for 119 days.
How is the Prime Minister selected in Britain
After the resignation of Liz Truss, there is a committee for the new PM of Britain. The members of this committee are the MPs of the party, who choose the Prime Minister. There are three stages in the process of becoming PM – Nomination, Elimination and Final Selection.
Rishi Sunak topped the nomination round and elimination round (first and second ballot) in the recently held elections.
In the end, about 2 lakh members of the party decided the name of the PM by ballot voting. Sunak was left behind by Liz Truss in this case.
