After several rounds of voting, Rishi Sunak took the lead among three remaining candidates. The new Conservative party leader will replace Boris Johnson as the new British prime minister.BBC - Who will replace Boris Johnson?
I do not know Rishi Sunak. What stands out is he is of South Asian origin. Besides Sunak, there were two more minority contenders, Suella Braverman and Nadhim Zahawi, are of minority origin. They were voted out. But that made the original panel of contenders rather diverse. The current London mayor Sadiq Khan is a South Asian. Sunak could surpass him to become the first South Asian to lead the entire country. Would people have foresee 2022 is the year for UK to select a non-white leader?
