Rishi Sunak Appointment as PM Comes Under Heavy Fire



Rishi Sunak Appointment as PM Comes Under Heavy Fire

The appointment of Rishi Sunak as Britain’s new Prime Minister after the resignation of former Prime Minister Liz Truss has come under heavy criticism by United Kingdom’s parliament member, Taiwo Owatemi.

The parliamentarian expressed outrage over Rishi Sunak’s emergence as Prime Minister as the Conservative Party leader sees himself become Britain’s first Indian-origin PM this week.

Ironically it was a position he lost to his predecessor, Liz Truss in August.

Owatemi, MP for Coventry North West, criticized Sunak’s appointment into the office based on the fact he was selected by a few persons.

The 30-year-old Labour Party member advocated the holding of a general election right away in two separate tweets, stating:

Rishi Sunak Appointment as PM Comes Under Heavy Fire

“Rishi Sunak has been hand-picked by a small group of out-of-touch Conservative MPs, with the British people having had no say at all.

“He has no mandate to lead our country at this crucial time. We need a General Election, now.

“Number of eligible voters in the UK = 46.5 million. People who chose Rishi Sunak to be Prime Minister = 357 Conservative MPs”, she wrote.

The UK’s current economic crisis, according to the former Shadow Minister for Women and Equalities, did not develop overnight.

Under the Conservatives, according to Owatemi, there had been 12 years of slow growth, declining living standards, and rising inequality.

“Rishi Sunak was the Chancellor for over two of those years. He’s part of the problem, not the solution”, the lawmaker declared.
