Truss appoints Jeremy Hunt as chancellor after sacking Kwarteng in bid to regular the economic system

Jeremy Hunt has been appointed as Liz Truss’s new chancellor, in a surprising reversal of political fortune and an indication that the beleaguered prime minister needs to achieve out to different sections of the Conservative celebration.

Hunt, the previous overseas secretary and well being secretary, has twice tried unsuccessfully to grow to be Conservative chief.

He has been on the backbenches since Boris Johnson grew to become prime minister in 2019, and is seen as coming from the extra one-nation wing of the celebration. His appointment signifies Truss needs to broaden her help – and is more likely to decelerate her rush to introduce tax cuts.
