Who is the Indian-born Home Secretary Suella Braverman in Liz Truss’s British cabinet?

Liz Truss, the new prime minister of the United Kingdom, took office on Tuesday and immediately filled several of the highest-ranking Cabinet positions, including that of home secretary, a woman of Indian descent named Suella Braverman. Braverman, a former foe who ran against Truss for the leadership of the Conservative Party before losing the race, eventually supported her against former chancellor Rishi Sunak in the final round of the competition. After Priti Patel, her predecessor, submitted her letter of resignation to departing Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Monday, the 42-year-old attorney and former Attorney General of Goan and Tamil descent has now been honoured with one of the top positions in the UK government.

Therese Coffey, who serves as deputy prime minister and secretary of state for health and social care, and Kwasi Kwarteng, who serves as chancellor of the exchequer, are among the other members of Truss’s senior team. James Cleverly assumes the responsibilities of Foreign Secretary Truss in the Boris Johnson-led administration.

Another ally, Wendy Morton, has been named Parliamentary Secretary to the Treasury, making her the first female Chief Whip of the Conservative Party in charge of party discipline.

In her debut speech delivered earlier on Tuesday in front of 10 Downing Street, Truss remarked, “We have enormous stores of talent, energy, and determination.” “I am convinced that, working together, we can weather the storm, restore our economy, and develop into the contemporary, magnificent Britain I know we are capable of becoming. To provide opportunity and prosperity for all people and future generations, this is our crucial mission. I’m going to deliver, I swear,” she added.

This week, as she gets ready for her first Prime Minister’s Questions (PMQs) in the House of Commons on Wednesday, Truss will continue to complete her cabinet selections.
