UNITED KINGDOM : Elizabeth Truss has been appointed Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs of the United Kingdom.
“The prime minister has set up a strong and united body to provide for Britain,” Truss said.
Prime Minister Johnson said his new cabinet would “work tirelessly to unite the whole country.”
Lis Truss has been appointed Foreign Secretary, replacing Dominique Robb, who was Foreign Secretary in the cabinet reshuffle of Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
His promotion came as Michael Cove was announced to be transferred to the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government.
As a result, Liz Truss, the most popular cabinet minister among Conservative voters, was promoted to become the first female Tory foreign secretary.
Liz Truss, who previously served as international trade secretary, is the second woman foreign secretary.
Women have now occupied two of the top four cabinet jobs after Priti Patel made sure to retain her job as Home Secretary. The other two main jobs are maintained by Rishi Sunak and the Prime Minister.Leave a comment
