Winner Liz Truss thanks Rishi Sunak, friend Boris Johnson, and the party

Global Report, 05 Sep 2022
There were a few key moments from Liz Truss’s speech there.

She dedicated a significant chunk of time to praising her predecessor Boris Johnson, which got some cheers from the crowd.

One of her big messages was about bringing the party together again, which will be one of her political challenges with the result being closer than in previous Tory leadership contests.

Helping her cause, perhaps, are some Rishi Sunak-supporting MPs already saying that the party now needs to unite.

She also appeared to pour cold water on any speculation about calling an early election.

Truss will be the third prime minister in a row now to take over that job without an election.
