Liz Truss Ascends to UK Prime Minister
Foreign Secretary becomes Third Female Prime Minister in the UK
Liz Truss, the Foreign Secretary under former Prime Minister Boris Johnson, became the newest prime minister. Truss defeated former Finance Secretary, Rishi Sunak. Truss will be installed at Balmoral Castle where HRH Queen Elizabeth II is currently residing as opposed to Buckingham Palace.
Truss won the race by appealing to the right as an “anti woke” candidate. She will be just the third female prime minister following Margaret Thatcher and Theresa May, both conservatives. Truss is 47.
