Hand over of power underway between Boris Johnson and Liz Truss

Liz Truss is making a 1,600km dash to see the Queen in Scotland before officially taking over as the UK’s prime minister Tuesday.
Truss is flying 800km each way Tuesday morning to Balmoral to be handed the keys to No 10 Downing Street by Queen Elizabeth II.
This comes after outgoing prime minister Boris Johnson’s farewell speech outside Downing Street earlier Tuesday.
Johnson will also fly to Scotland to officially hand the Queen his resignation. However, the two politicians will travel in separate planes to Aberdeen for their meetings with the monarch but Johnson will get there first.
Once he has left, his successor will be invited in for her first private audience with the monarch when she will be appointed Britain’s next prime minister and asked to form an administration.
After her half an hour with the Queen, Truss is expected to fly back to London. Once there, she will give her first address as prime minister at about 4pm UK time.
The nuclear codes will be handed over to her and she will write “letters of last resort” to commanders of submarines carrying Trident nuclear missiles with orders on what to do if the government has been wiped out in a nuclear attack.The post Hand over of power underway between Boris Johnson and Liz Truss first appeared on Ariana News.
