Rishi Sunak will be appointed Prime Minister by Charles III
After his victory in the British Conservative Party, Rishi Sunak is due to meet King Charles III on Tuesday morning who will officially appoint him Prime Minister, the third in two months in a country plagued by unprecedented instability and a deep social crisis.
It will be the first time that Charles III appoints a head of government. The current tenant of Downing Street, Liz Truss, had been received by Elizabeth II on September 6 during an audience at the Scottish castle of Balmoral. The 96-year-old sovereign died two days later.
One of the worst prime ministers of the UK, Liz Truss, who resigned on Thursday after just 44 days in office, will make her last speech outside 10 Downing Street around 10:15 a.m. (0915 GMT) and then travel to Buckingham Palace to hand in her resignation to the King.
Former banker and Minister of Finance, Rishi Sunak will become, at 42, the youngest head of government in the contemporary history of the United Kingdom after a meteoric rise in politics. He is also the first of Indian origin and the first from a former British colony.
