New Delhi: Britain’s new Prime Minister Rishi Sunak reappointed Suella Braverman as Home Secretary on Tuesday in a cabinet reshuffle.
Notably, Braverman’s resignation from the same position precipitated the downfall of Liz Truss. During his time under former Prime Minister Truss, Braverman made a controversial remark that “Indian migrants stay in the UK too long”.
Braverman, of Indian descent, is another Bexiteer like Sunak. It remains to be seen how his tough stance on immigration will play out in the new Cabinet after his remarks on Indian visa overruns caused a lot of damage to the ongoing free trade agreement (FTA) talks between India and the UK.
His role includes overseeing immigration, policing and counter-terrorism.
Braverman was appointed Home Secretary, one of the most senior government posts, in September when Truss became the new Prime Minister. But she resigned last Wednesday for a “mistake”.
In her resignation letter, she said she sent an official document from her personal email address, breaking the departmental code.
She also slammed Truss, saying her government had “broken key promises that were promised to voters.”
