After weeks of duel, it is clear who will succeed Boris Johnson (58) as British Prime Minister. Foreign Minister Liz Truss (47) prevailed against her rival within the party, former Finance Minister Rishi Sunak (42). More than 81,000 votes went to Truss in the UK Conservatives vote. Her opponent Sunak got around 60,000 votes. Expressed as a percentage, 57 percent of the valid votes went to Truss, as the British “BBC” reports.
Truss and Johnson will travel to Balmoral Castle in Scotland tomorrow, Tuesday, where Queen Elizabeth II (96) is currently staying. This is where the official handover of official business takes place.
