New UK Prime Minister To Be Confirmed Today. Liz Truss Tipped

A TOWERING to-do list faces Liz Truss if she is announced as the new Conservative leader today, with the incoming Prime Minister’s inbox overflowing with issues to tackle.

The Foreign Secretary, Truss is expected to be unveiled as Boris Johnson’s successor at 12.30pm today when the result of the Tory leadership election is finally announced. For six weeks Ms Truss and her rival Rishi Sunak have toured the country setting out their different visions for the country.

As voting ended on Friday, TechneUK released an exclusive survey for that showed the South West Norfolk MP was poised to win with the backing of 64 percent of Conservative members, as opposed to the 36 percent believed to have backed Mr. Sunak. Ten minutes before the results are made public, the contenders for No. 10 will learn who has won, but Ms. Truss has already begun making plans for her anticipated premiership. The incoming Prime Minister will be under intense pressure to rapidly take control of a variety of crises affecting the country after weeks of claims of a “Zombie Government.”

However, the number drops to just 39 percent among Conservative voters, with almost as many backers of the Tories (36 percent) saying tax cuts must be the no1 issue for the new Prime Minister.

At the same time, hardline Brexiteer on the Government backbenches in the House of Commons want fast action on tackling the EU over the Northern Ireland Protocol.

“She made clear it was a priority and I suspect she’ll deliver.”
