Having leapt onto the Conservative stage at a tumultuous time for British politics, Rishi Sunak had his work cut out for him from day one.
Axar.az reports that long seen as one of the most successful political parties in the Western world, the Conservative Party’s members, supporters and politicians had been crying out for strong and sensible leadership.
Mr Sunak’s victory in the Tory leadership race was unlike any other the UK’s first ethnic Asian and Hindu leader entered office as the shortest-serving prime minister, Liz Truss, departed.
Casting himself as a sensible pair of hands committed to steadying the rocky Tory ship, he made a vow to the British public to lead with “integrity, professionalism and accountability”.
As he disappeared behind the black door of 10 Downing Street, there was a thirst for stability following months of Tory infighting and years of Brexit dominating politics.
Less than three months later, he laid out his five key priorities: stop the boats, halve inflation in 2023, grow the economy, reduce debt and cut waiting lists for patients in the National Health Service.
As Mr Sunak approaches his anniversary in office and prepares for his first Conservative Party Conference as leader, it begs the question: has the Prime Minister made good on his promises?
