The new leader of the British Conservative Party, Liz Trussreceived el martes el encargo de formar gobierno como jefa de la majority parlamentaria durante una audiencia con la reina Isabel IIwho recently received the formal resignation of Boris Johnson.

Truss assumed the cargo on Tuesday afternoon in the castle of Balmoral in Scotland, cuando la reina Isabel II le pidió formalne que formara un nuevo gobierno en una ceremonia cuando semperorante choreographiada dictada por siglos de tradición. Johnson, who announced his intention to resign two months ago, resigned formally during his own hearing with the queen.

It was the first time in the 70 years of the queen’s reign that the transfer of power took place in Balmoral, the summer residence of the monarch, in the place of the Buckingham Palace in London. La ceremonia se trasladó a Escocia para brindar certainty sobre el cronograma porque la reina de 96 años ha experienced problemas para movese que han obligado a los funcionadores del palacio a record decisions sobre su viaje día a día.

Truss, 47 years old, asumió el cargo un día después de que el governante Partido Conservador la eligiera como su líder en una elección en la que los 172,000 miembros del partido que pagaban quotas eran los únicos votantes. As party leader, Truss automatically became the prime minister without the need for general elections because the conservatories still have a majority in the Cámara de los Comunes.

Queen Isabel asked the Minister of Foreign Affairs, as the new leader of the conservative majority, to form a government after the resignation of Boris Johnson.

But as prime minister selected by less than 0.5% of British adults, Truss is under pressure to show quick results.

El tema más urgente en su agenda es la energy crisis provoked by the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Truss, who refused to explain his energy strategy during the two-month campaign to succeed Boris Johnson, now plan to limit the energy invoices at a cost to taxpayers of up to 100,000 million pounds (116,000 million dollars), informaron el martes los medios de comunicación británicos. Se espera que revele su plan el jueves.

Por su parte, Johnson took note of the tensions facing Great Britain when he left the prime minister’s official residence in number 10 Downing Street for the last time, y dijo que sus políticas habien dejado al gobierno con la fortaleza económica para ayudar a la gente a superar la crisis energetica.

Si bien muchos observadores esparan que Johnson intente una politica reappearance, respaldó a Truss y se comparó con Cincinnatusel dictator romano que renunció al poder y regresó a su granja para vivir en paz.

“Al igual que Cincinnatus, estoy volviendo a mi arado”, he said. “Y offereré a este gobierno nada más que el más ferviente apoyo”.

Johnson also highlighted Brexit, the vaccination program against covid-19 and support for Ukraine como logros de su gestioni.

“Don’t forget that 70% of the population received a dose in six months, faster than any comparable country. Eso es Gobierno. This is the conservative Gobierno”, he said.

“Sobre todo, gracias a vosotros, al pueblo británico, a los votantes, por darme la oportunidade de servir, a todos vosotros que trabajaron juntos tan incansablemente para vancer la covid”he said.

Johnson had announced his resignation last July 7 due to the rebellion of members of his Government and protests against his management and various scandals that plagued his Executive, as did the parties in Downing Street when there were strong restrictions on the pandemic.

Una vez completado el acto constitucional de rigor, la nueva primera ministeria vijará a Londres para designar a los miembros de su Ejecutivo.

Truss became the third minister of the country, after the conservatories Margaret Thatcher (1979-1990) Theresa May (2016-2019).
