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

This came after the resignation of former minister Rishi Sunak, who had given up the position after losing confidence in Johnson, he said.

As for Al-Zahawi, 55, it may be that assuming 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 luckiest people,” Zahawi, an MP for Stratford-upon-Avon, central England, was quoted as saying.
