Boris Johnson’s former education minister has been appointed as Britain’s new finance minister.

This comes after the resignation of former minister Rishi Sunak, who resigned after losing confidence in Johnson, he said.

As for Al-Zahawi (55), it could be that accepting one of the most important positions in the British state is something he did not even dare dream of as a child.

“I was probably one of the happiest people,” said Zahawi, an MP for Stratford-upon-Avon, Central England.
