Liz Truss appoints Top Cabinet with Kwasi Kwarteng as Chancellor

Liz Truss has begun appointing her cabinet after being officially asked by the Queen to form a new government, appointing Kwasi Kwarteng as the new Chancellor.

Kwasi Kwarteng, formerly Boris Johnson’s business secretary, before his appointment.

He replaces Nadhim Zahawi who took up the role when his predecessor Rishi Sunak quit, saying in his resignation letter to Mr Johnson that their approaches to the economy were “fundamentally too different”.

The Eton-educated son of Ghanaian immigrants, Mr Kwarteng only took up his first cabinet role last year, but has been a long-term ally of Ms Truss’s since they entered the commons together back in 2010.
