Liz Truss, who has been serving as the country's foreign minister for the past 12 months, has been named as the Conservative Party's next leader.

She will most likely be officially appointed as the new prime minister on Tuesday afternoon by Queen Elizabeth.

In general, the outcome was determined after a lengthy countrywide poll by party activists this summer.

In a six-year period marked by political turbulence, Truss will become the fourth president of the nation.

Truss succeeds Boris Johnson, who was forced to resign due to a slew of scandals that erupted in the first part of this year.

Truss, 47, who has been the front-runner for weeks, will now become Britain's third female prime minister, joining Theresa May and Margaret Thatcher.

Conservatives who backed both candidates quietly acknowledge that her win was less significant than they had anticipated.

In the midst of Britain's escalating economic and social turmoil, Truss will take over as leader on Tuesday after defeating competitor Rishi Sunak with 81,326 votes to 60,399 among party members.
