Rishi Sunak replaces Sajid Javid as British Finance Minister

Britain’s finance minister, Sajid Javid, resigned on Thursday, just weeks after Brexit and a month before he was due to deliver the government’s annual budget.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will appoint Rishi Sunak as his new finance minister on Thursday, according to a government statement.

Javid’s spokesman confirmed he would be leaving just as Johnson carried out the first reshuffle of his cabinet since winning a parliamentary majority in December’s election.
