Rishi Sunak to become UK’s next PM as Mordaunt withdraws

London, 24/10: Rishi Sunak has been named Britain’s next Prime Minister, on Monday. The move came shortly after Liz Truss’ resignation from the post, just 45 days after being elected for the job.



He is the first man of Indian origin to lead the country as PM. Mordaunt pulled out of the contest at the last minute, expressing support for Sunak.


Truss had last Thursday resigned as the Conservative Party leader saying she can no longer deliver the mandate she was elected on last month.
