Liz Truss is the new prime minister of the UK and joined office a day after the British Conservative Party elected her as a leader. She was appointed as the next prime minister of Britain by Queen Elizabeth II at the Balmoral estate in Scotland.
Let us tell you that it is a traditional break and this is the first time when the Queen Elizabeth handover the power to the Balmoral instead of Buckingham Palace. This is a huge change, and it also spread rumors about the health of the 96-year-old queen. About 172,000 members voted for her to take the power of Britain’s conservative party. It is a tough race against Rishi Sunak, the former chancellor.
The statement of Buckingham Palace statement:
The Queen received in the Audience the right honorable Elizabeth Truss MP today and requested her to form a new Administration. Ms. Truss accepted Her Majesty’s offer and kissed her hands upon her appointment as Prime Minister and First Lord of the Treasury.
During the pledge, Truss promised that he would deliver on the economy and improve the energy crisis and overstretched health care system. She promised to serve the nation with honesty and take it to another level.
