Liz Truss defeated Rishi Sunak to become the next Prime Minister of Britain. The final vote count has been calculated at 81,326 votes to 60,399 votes. This is the fourth time Britain is getting a conservative prime minister. 

After the results were revealed, Liz Truss gave a speech and said, “We need to show that we will deliver over the next two years. I will deliver a bold plan to cut taxes and grow our economy.” 

She continued,”I will deliver on the energy crisis, dealing with people’s energy bills, but also dealing with the long-term issues we have on energy supply.” This transfer of position started when, back in July, Boris Johnson was forced to step down after months of scandal. 

On Tuesday, Boris Johnson will visit Her Majesty to officially sign his resignation. He will be followed by Liz Truss, who will formally as Her Majesty to form her government. 

While running her campaign, she indicated that she would “challenge the convention by scraping tax increases and cutting other levies in a move some economists say would fuel inflation.”

She also pledged to “review the remit of the Bank of England while protecting its independence.” This promise has made some big investors dump government bonds and pounds.
