New Prime Minister Theresa May quickly assembled a built-for-Brexit cabinet on her first evening at 10 Downing St. and, in a surprise pick, put Boris Johnson—the former London mayor who appeared politically deceased a week ago—in charge of foreign policy.
Meanwhile, more women are expected to be promoted into senior roles.
Amber Rudd was appointed the Home Secretary. She served as the Energy and Climate Change Secretary before. Liam Fox was appointed the International Trade Secretary, David Davis the new Brexit Secretary, Philip Hammond was promoted from the position of Foreign Secretary to Chancellor of the Exchequer.
