UK Home secretary Suella Braverman has recently resigned from her post amidst an ongoing political crisis. She is doing well, and health is not a cause of her departure.
Sue-Ellen Cassiana Braverman, also known as Suella Braverman, is a British barrister and politician. She had a short stint as Home Secretary of the UK from September to October 2022.
After Borris Johnson resigned in July 2022, Suella contested as a candidate to succeed him in the Conservative Party leadership election but was eliminated after the second round of voting.
Subsequently, she supported Liz Truss’s bid to become Conservative leader and was appointed home secretary on September 6, 2022, under the premiership of Liz. Braverman resigned as home secretary on October 19, 2022, only after 43 days in office.
The news comes at a hugely turbulent time for the British government, with former Prime Minister Liz Truss immediately following suit and resigning after just two months of taking the oath. It remains to be seen who will replace her.
Suella Braverman Health Was Not A Reason Behind Her Resignation
Suella Braverman does not have any known health issues or illnesses. Health reasons were not the cause of her resignation. Rather, a breach made by her forced her to terminate her office.
The leading right-winger was sacked by then prime minister Liz Truss because she made a serious breach of ministerial rules by sending an official document from her personal email to a fellow MP.
The draft written statement on migration was considered highly sensitive because of the potential implications for market-sensitive growth forecasts from the Office for Budget Responsibility.
The resignation of Suella Braverman threw Liz Truss’s premiership into further chaos and angered the Tory right. After thanking Suella for her services, Liz resigned the following day, i.e., on October 20.
The Guardian first revealed that Suella was departing, and the former transport secretary, Grant Shapps, was replacing her. Grant was known as a strong backer of Rishi Sunak in the Conservative leadership bid.
It was not Suella’s first time resigning from a government post. After being appointed Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for exiting the European Union by Theresa May in the January 2018 cabinet reshuffle, she resigned in protest against the proposed Northern Ireland backstop.
