Ex-Prime Minister David Cameron named new UK foreign secretary in Cabinet reshuffle

LONDON, UK - NOV. 13, 2023: Former Prime Minister David Cameron was appointed as the new UK foreign secretary in a Cabinet reshuffle on Monday, Nov. 13. Cameron, who served as prime minister from 2010 to 2016, took the new role after James Cleverly, who was foreign secretary, replaced Suella Braverman as the home secretary. Braverman was sacked by Prime Minister Rishi Sunak earlier in the day after a row with police on protests in London. King Charles III has confirmed Cameron as a life peer in the House of Lords, enabling him to take up the post as he is currently not an MP. Cameron said Sunak has asked him to serve as foreign secretary and he has "gladly accepted." "Though I may have disagreed with some individual decisions, it is clear to me that Rishi Sunak is a strong and capable Prime Minister, who is showing exemplary leadership at a difficult time," he wrote on X. Imran Hussain, Labour MP for Bradford East, said that bringing Cameron back into the government shows that the Conservative Party is "completely out of ideas and utterly out of touch."
