Liz Truss emerges new British Prime Minister


Liz Truss was chosen by the British Conservative Party on Monday to succeed Prime Minister Boris Johnson as party leader and address the country's worst economic crisis in decades.

She polled a total of 81, 326 to beats former finance minister Rishi Sunak who polled a total of 60,399 in the Conservative Party's election.

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

"I campaigned as a Conservative, and I will govern as a Conservative," she said, touting Tory values of low taxes and personal responsibility. Truss vowed a "bold plan" to address tax cuts and the energy crisis.

Truss takes over from Boris Johnson who resigned from office in July.
