Liz Truss, who has been chosen as the new Prime Minister of England, has now selected black people for key positions in her cabinet. This is the first time in British political history that a black person has been appointed to a major ministerial position without a white person.
Liz Truss, leader of the Conservative Party and Prime Minister of the country, was elected in the election in England. Queen Elizabeth of England made him a Brahmin. At this stage, he has chosen the Council of Ministers. He appointed Kwasi Kwarteng, who arrived from Ghana in the 1960s, as Britain’s first black finance minister.
He also appointed James Cleverley, who is black, as the Minister of Foreign Affairs. He has also chosen Suella Braverman, a Kenyan immigrant to the UK, as Home Secretary. He will look after the police and immigration.
The present Cabinet is formed in the Conservative Party’s spirit of unity in diversity. It is noteworthy that in the year 2002 when there were only white people in the history of British politics, Paul Batengwai, who belongs to the first minority group, was appointed as the Chief Secretary of the Treasury.
