Britain’s Zhawi backs Truss as next Conservative Party leader – The Telegraph

Adds more detail, background

July 31 (Reuters) – British Finance Minister Nadim Jahavi has formally endorsed Liz Truss as the next leader of the Conservative Party, The Telegraph reported on Sunday.

“The foreign secretary truce will “reverse stale economic conservatism and run our economy in a conservative manner,” Zahvi wrote in The Telegraph.

Jahvi, who took over as finance minister from Rishi Sunak in early July, was removed from the UK leadership contest in the first vote after failing to obtain the required minimum of 30 votes.

Attorney General Suella Braverman and the chairman of the Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee Tom Tugendhat, who both dropped out of the race, are also backing the truce in the leadership contest.
