Rishi Sunak tipped to head new UK ‘economic super-ministry’

Deputy Finance Minister Rishi Sunak is being tipped by senior members of Britain’s Conservative Party to run a new ‘economic super-ministry’ following a cabinet reshuffle in February, the Financial Times has reported. 

Sunak, the Conservatives’ Chief Secretary to the Treasury, is in line for promotion to a full cabinet portfolio in the reshuffle, according to the report. 

Sunak was elected to Parliament in 2015, Richmond, a seat previously held by former Conservative party leader William Hague.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson is expected to create an enlarged business ministry which would absorb the international trade department, the report added.
