Britain Names New Prime Minister Monday


Britain’s Conservative Party is expected to announce Monday whether Foreign Secretary Liz Truss or former Treasury Secretary Rishi Sunak will emerge from the party voting as the leader of the Conservative Party and the new prime minister.  

Political analysts widely expect Truss to win the support of her colleagues.  

Whoever wins will immediately face fallout from Britain’s recession and escalating energy bills. 

Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced in July that he was stepping down after his government was awash in a number of scandals.  

Whoever wins the Conservative Party election will travel to Scotland Tuesday, where Queen Elizabeth will formally invite the winner to form a government.
