After visiting with the Queen, who requested that she form a new administration, Liz Truss has been appointed as the new Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.
Truss, who is 47 years old, was sworn into office on Tuesday in a ceremony that was meticulously scripted with the participation of the queen. The event took place one day following the reigning Conservative Party revealed that Truss had been chosen as its leader.
According to a statement released by Buckingham Palace, “The Queen welcomed in Person Elizabeth Truss today, she requested that she establish a new Administration.”
It was noted that “upon her nomination as PM and First Lord of Treasury, Ms. Truss kissed Her Majesty’s hand and accepted the offer that Her Majesty had extended to her.”
Her immediate predecessor, Boris Johnson, tendered his formal resignation to the Queen of England at his personal meeting with the monarch at her estate in Balmoral, which is located in Scotland.
In his final speech as prime minister, which took place earlier on Tuesday, Johnson said that his regulations had given the nation the financial capacity to assist people during the energy crisis. Until he agreed to sign off with his pretty standard bluster, Johnson said that his initiatives had given the nation the ability to help folks weather the energy crisis.
Before getting into a vehicle and departing Downing Street for the final time as prime minister, Johnson stated, “I feel similar to one of those rocket boosters that has done its mission.” Johnson was speaking before he left the doors of Downing Street.
“I will now be slowly reentering the atmosphere and softly splashing down in some remote and hidden region of the Pacific Ocean,” he said. “I will be completely undetected.”
On Monday, Truss was chosen as the next leader of the Conservative Party by the 172,000 members that make up the party.
It is anticipated that she will deliver her first address as leader of the nation on Tuesday afternoon. She will be leading 67 million people who are worried about rising energy costs, an impending winter of economic contraction, and labor unrest.
After declaring his intention to stand down from his position, Johnson lacked the power to make significant policy choices, therefore these issues have been allowed to fester for the past 2 months.
During her speech to members of the Conservative Party on Monday, Truss vowed to “deliver” on the recession, the energy problem, and the stretched to-the-limit healthcare system, despite the fact that she provided little specifics on her policy proposals.
Oh, Did I mention that she is a FULL Member of the WEF?
