PM Sunak pledges to fix mistakes made by Liz Truss

In his first speech as prime minister, Rishi Sunak promised to correct “mistakes” under Liz Truss’s direction and warned of impending “tough decisions.” He promised to mend relationships, boost confidence, and guide the UK through “a grave economic catastrophe.”

After defeating Mr. Sunak in a vote among Tory members during the summer, Ms. Truss was elected prime minister. She did this by appealing to members with her tax-cutting economic program.

However, political and economic unrest destabilized her government, which was furthered by her mini-budget, whose program of unfunded tax cuts was largely abandoned.

“But some mistakes were made,” Mr Sunak said. “Not born of ill will or bad intentions, quite the opposite, in fact. But mistakes nonetheless.” “I have been elected as leader of the party and as prime minister in part to fix them. And that work begins immediately.”
