Truss' First Full Day As PM-What To Watch Out For

UK

Prime Minister Liz Truss engages in her first full day in office with focus on PMQs and her first meeting as leader with Conservative backbench MPs.

  • At 1200BST (0700ET, 1300CET) Truss faces her first prime ministers' questions in the House of Commons.
  • Notable focus on whether Truss will announce energy price support for households. An announcement is expected this week following her first national address last night, but tomorrow seen as the more likely time for this.
  • At 1600BST (1100ET, 1700CET) Truss has her first meeting as leader with 1922 Committee of backbench Conservative MPs. Less than one-third of Conservative MPs voted for Truss in the final round of MPs voting. As such she comes into office as the only Conservative leader not to have topped the final MPs ballot, and with the lowest level of support from Conservative party members (she won 57.4% of the vote, next lowest was Iain Duncan-Smith who won 60.7% in 2001).
  • Earlier today, Truss chaired her first Cabinet meeting. The appointment of her loyalists and removal of any supporters of her Conservative leadership challenger Rishi Sunak to senior ministerial posts raised some eyebrows in Westminster. As has been noted in many outlets, there are now a large number of backbench Conservative MPs who have held high positions in gov't and are unlikely to feel any loyalty to the new PM.
