British's Conservative Party Picks Liz Truss To Replace Boris Johnson As Prime Minister

British's Conservative Party Picks Liz Truss To Replace Boris Johnson As Prime Minister

Britain’s Conservative Party has named Foreign Secretary Liz Truss as its leader triggering the beginning of a handover from Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

She is taking power as Britain’s next prime minister at a time when the country faces a cost-of-living crisis, industrial unrest and a recession.

The announcement that was made on Monday came after weeks of an often bad-tempered and divisive party leadership contest that pitted Truss against Rishi Sunak, a former finance minister.

Johnson was forced to announce his resignation in July after months of scandal and he will travel to Scotland to meet Queen Elizabeth on Tuesday to officially tender his resignation.

His successor will follow him and be asked to form a government.

In a short victory speech at the announcement in a central London convention hall, Truss said it was an “honour” to be elected after undergoing “one of the longest job interviews in history”. 

Al Jazeera’s Jonah Hull, reporting from London, said Truss won not as resoundingly as the opinion polls might have earlier suggested. He said:

She picked up 57 per cent of eligible votes among Conservative Party members. Rishi Sunak, former chancellor of the exchequer, got 42 per cent.

She promised that she campaigned as a Conservative and she will govern as a Conservative, she promised to cut taxes, to grow the economy, she promised to deal with the energy crisis.

Truss became the Conservatives’ fourth prime minister since a 2015 election.

Over that period the country has been buffeted from crisis to crisis, and now faces what is forecast to be a long recession triggered by sky-rocketing inflation which hit 10.1 per cent in July.

I want to join those who are congratulating Ms Liz Truss for having been chosen to be the Conservative leader.

However, this was written on the wall when Ms Liz Truss was left alone fighting against Mr, Rishi Sunak, " an Asian White".

I urge Mr Sunak to remain in British politics. He did well to reach this far in British politics.

Yours faithfully

You see we need a system which has mechanisms to provide for eligible and qualified voters as compared to just registering to vote with Zec simply bcoz u are 18yrs and above, despite your brains. We don't want were professionals like doctors, prominent business people, reputable engineers etc cast a vote which is measured on the same scale of that of a grade 7 dropout we muruzevha. Tobva tatoti tapedza ku voter but tisina kutarisa the brains behind the person a caster ballot paper wacho🧐🧐🧐 it will be childish gullibility. How can u compare the vote of a professional neya Tobias we muruzevha akatadza kusvika gr 7 anongoziva kuenda kunovhima tsuro chete musango then world yake inenge yatokwana so🤔🤔 the elections are just a joke. Zanu pf will continue to win forever. 😂😂😂

We cant go back to the Smith era where they looked at somebodys colour, property, education for you to qualify to vote either on the A Roll or B Roll thus retrogressive. The ideal situation is for everybody over 18 to vote freely not under coersion as is the practice now where chiefs and village heads are used to intimidate the poor villagers.

yeah, i overheard someone achiti being having knowledge and being wise are two different things. The ability to use knowledge is called wisdom. Many peoples knows a great but are not wise. The most foolish fool is the one with knowledge. Some pple are educated and learned, but they are not wise. Business management as a degree unogona kuidzidza simply buy revising your mistakes and seeking growth from your business manouvres. Munhu anotanga achitengesa fodya ozaita supermarket that one aidzidza from experience. So Tobias arikutopindawo chikoro wth the best teacher, EXPERIENCE

Tintin na Tobias we muruzevha mu grade 7 drop out anosunga bhurukwa ne waya haana chaanoziva regarding national policies kuti aendese nyika kumberi . Iye anenge achitoda kubatsira wo. His vote means nothing hama yangu. He doesn't vote indipendently but under duress .

Education contributes a lot pa munhu wangu. One with education is better off than one without it in their way of seeing things. That's why education is a national policy in each and every country. Different levels of education determine the progress of societies shamwari as well as the cause for voting patterns bcoz ma manifesto ema campaigning parties are understood much better by educated people than those without it.Still ana Tobias ma gr 7 drop outs vauri ku defender ivawo vari kungo vhotera futi ma graduates of various sorts. Diploma, degrees and PhD holders etc vachito yemura kuti vari educated but vozo suffer futi big-time after voting them in power. The uneducated rural folk is yet to be civilised. That's these politicians reside in the capital Harare only to come during elections lying to the rural folks and go back to Harare and only to come mainly during election period lying again.

still ana Tobias ma gr 7 drop outs vanongoramba vachivhotera people like ana Robert Mugabe ivawo. The most critical people to mugabes rule was the educated community hama dzangu.
