Rishi Sunak Faces Mps at his first PM's questions

Rishi Sunak Tackles MPs Well At His First PM’s Question

Rishi Sunak, the leader of the Conservative Party, became the new prime minister of the United Kingdom. Sunak served as Chancellor of the Exchequer from 2020 to 2022. He was Chief Secretary to the Treasury from 2019 to 2020 and has been a Member of Parliament for Richmond since 2015.

The new prime minister takes questions from Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer and other opposition leaders at his first PMQs. This comes after the resignation of former prime minister Liz Truss less than a week ago.

In his first Prime Minister’s Questions, Rishi Sunak was accused of taking part in a ‘grubby deal’ by reappointing Suella Braverman as Home Secretary. The PM has said that his government will restore economic stability.

Starmer asked Sunak if Suella Braverman was right to resign last week for breach of security.

Rishi replied, “the home secretary made an error of judgment but she recognised that she raised the matter and she accepted her mistake.

Braverman will be focused on “cracking down on criminals, on defending our borders”, he added.

Labour Party is again demanding a general election

Many Labour MPs including Starmer, again have demanded a general election.

Labour MP Janet Daby asked, “Can the prime minister tell me and my constituents when there will be a general election? They are demanding a general election,” she added.

Daby called Sunak’s administration a “topsy-turvy Tory government”.

Opposition Raised Their Voice On Braverman Issue

Labour Party as well as Scottish National Party raised their voices and asked why Suella Braverman has been re-appointed as home secretary in spite of her alleged breach of ministerial code.

While answering Labour Party’s Starmer, PM Sunak said Braverman ‘made an error of judgment’.
