UK’s former finance minister, Rishi Sunak eyes Boris Johnson’s job
UK’s former -finance minister Rishi Sunak, has announced his bid to succeed Boris Johnson who resigned as Prime Minister on Thursday.
On Friday, British Conservative Rishi Sunak, whose resignation from Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s cabinet helped spark an exodus of other ministers, declared his candidacy to become the party’s next leader.
“Let’s restore trust, rebuild the economy and reunite the country,” the former finance minister said, presenting a slick video about his life story to launch the campaign on social media.
“Someone has to grip this moment and make the right decisions,” Sunak said in his campaign video, which he released online. The 42-year-old MP has been seen as the heir apparent of Boris Johnson at 10 Downing Street and it is believed that he also supports a sizeable number of members of the Conservative Party to launch his candidacy.
“We need to make sure that’s not the end of the British Indian story. There is lots more we can achieve. There is lots more we can do. And I’m really excited about the future,” Sunak had said last week in response to a question on whether he would go on to become the first Indian-origin prime minister of the UK.
Rishi Sunak is a British politician who served as Chancellor of the Exchequer from 2020 to 2022, having previously served as Chief Secretary to the Treasury from 2019 to 2020. A member of the Conservative Party, he has been Member of Parliament for Richmond since 2015
