Liz Truss likely to become next UK PM


Liz Truss appears poised to take over as the next prime minister of the UK. The result of the summer-long campaign that pitted the foreign secretary against the former chancellor will be announced on Monday.

By this time, Prime Minister Boris Johnson will formally hand over his resignation to Queen Elizabeth II. As of now, Liz Truss enjoys overwhelming support and is ahead of Rishi Sunak.
Whoever wins the election will have a tough time as the UK is in the throes of its worst cost of living crisis. Inflation has been soaring as energy prices rocket due to the Russian attack on Ukraine. Liz Truss has vowed tax cuts but it will not help the poor in any way.
Whoever wins, the Conservatives will have to face a growing challenge to retain their 12 year grip on power.
