Rishi Sunak will be the new Prime Minister of Britain, may take over the post tomorrow
Rishi Sunak will be the next Prime Minister of Britain. He has been elected leader of the Conservative Party. He will be Britain’s first prime minister of Asian origin. Sir Graham Brady has formally announced this.
Earlier, Penny Mordont withdrew her claim. Rishi Sunak can officially take over as the Prime Minister from Tuesday.
The new British Prime Minister will face many difficult challenges and questions. The most difficult of these is the current state of the UK economy.
Britain is getting poorer and the people of the country are feeling it – or to put it in the words of a cabinet minister, “we have all the problems we already had and now the economic crisis too.”
The difficult situation created by the administration of short-term Prime Minister Liz Truss has put the Conservative Party in jeopardy. His decisions, and then his backlash, forced Britain to endure brutal treatment at the hands of the financial market.
He won the Parliament election for the first time in 2015, at the age of 35. In just seven years, he is going to become the Prime Minister today.
He is the son-in-law of NR Narayana Murthy, the famous industrialist of India and the founder of Infosys Company. He married Akshata Murthy in the year 2009.
Rishi Sunak was the finance minister in the Boris Johnson cabinet. He has promised to strengthen the country’s economy after becoming the Prime Minister.
Since 2015, Sunak was elected a Conservative MP from Richmond, Yorkshire. He lives in Karby Sigston, outside the city of Northerton. His father was a doctor and mother was a pharmacist. His family members of Indian origin came to Britain from East Africa.
Rishi writes on his website, “My parents made a lot of sacrifices so that I could go to good schools. I was fortunate enough to study at Winchester College, Oxford University and Stanford University.”

In 1980, Sunak was born in Southhamton, Hampshire and studied at the exclusive private school Winchester College. After this he went to Oxford, where he studied philosophy, politics and economics. This is the most tried and trusted route for aspiring British politicians.
He also studied MBA at Stanford University. Before entering politics, he worked at the investment bank Goldman Sachs and also founded an investment firm. Rishi and Akshata have two daughters.
Sunak campaigned in favor of leaving the European Union in the referendum, and 55 percent of the people voted in favor of leaving the European Union in his parliamentary constituency.
In July 2019, Sunak handed over the finance ministry to Johnson. Prior to this he was Parliamentary Under Secretary in the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government from January 2018 to July 2019.
Rishi Sunak has said that his Asian identity matters to him. He said, “I’m a first generation immigrant. My kin came here, so you’ve got people from that generation who were born here, their kin was not born here and they came to this country to make their living.”
Controversy over his wife’s tax matters and fines for violating lockdown rules hurt his reputation. Rishi Sunak was one of the first cabinet ministers to leave the Boris Johnson cabinet.
Sunak was in the race before
Rishi Sunak was in the race for leadership even six weeks ago. Then after the resignation of British Prime Minister Liz Truss, Sunak again came in the race for the post of Prime Minister of Britain.
Meanwhile, there is a lot of discussion in the political corridors that former Prime Minister Boris Johnson can also return to the post.
Although Jeremy Hunt’s name also surfaced, he refused to join the race for leadership.
Meanwhile, Penny Mordont has officially presented her candidacy for the race for the post of Prime Minister of Britain. She had also participated in the previous race, but failed.
