Liz Truss was elected as the next Prime Minister of United Kingdom on September 05. She will replace Boris Johnson as UK PM. Truss had gone head-to-head against Indian-origin former Chancellor Rishi Sunak. Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak rose to the Conservative ranks to end up as finalists for the contest for the post of UK PM. The Tory Leadership Race was triggered after Johnson was forced to step down on July 07 amid an avalanche of resignations of government officials, who protested against his scandal-plagued leadership. Johnson will continue to serve as caretaker Prime Minister until a new Tory leader succeeds him.
