Liz Truss wird Britanniens neue Premier-Ministerin

By Jordi Bou

September 5, 2022 - Außenministerin Liz Truss wird Britanniens Permierministerin nach ihrem Sieg als Vorsitzende der Konservativen Partei. Auf sie wartet die beängstigendeste Wirtschaftskrise der letzten Jahre.

Truss takes over as the country faces a cost of living crisis, industrial unrest, a recession and war in Europe, where Britain has been a leading backer of Ukraine. She appeared to rule out another national election for the next two years, saying she would win a great victory for her party in 2024.

The 47-year-old incoming premier, who has served in the cabinet for eight years, has promised a rightwing agenda of tax cuts – largely funded by borrowing – in an attempt to halt Britain sliding into a lengthy recession.

She succeeds Boris Johnson, who was forced to announce his resignation in July after months of scandal saw support for his administration drain away.
