former UK Prime Minister David Cameron made a surprise return to government on November 13, 2023, when he was appointed Foreign Secretary by Prime Minister Rishi Sunak.
Cameron’s appointment was seen as a sign that Sunak is looking to shore up his government and to bring in experienced politicians to help him deal with the challenges facing the UK.
Cameron served as Prime Minister from 2010 to 2016, and he is seen as a skilled negotiator and diplomat.
Sunak has said that he appointed Cameron as Foreign Secretary because of his “vast experience and expertise in international affairs.”
He has also said that Cameron will be a “valuable asset to the government” as the UK seeks to strengthen its ties with allies and to build new relationships with emerging powers.
Cameron has said that he is “honored” to have been appointed Foreign Secretary and that he is “looking forward to serving the country again.”
He has also said that he is committed to “working with Prime Minister Sunak to build a stronger, more prosperous, and more secure UK.”
Cameron’s appointment is a significant political development. It is the first time that a former Prime Minister has returned to government since Harold Wilson in 1974.
It is also a sign that Sunak is willing to bring in experienced politicians, even from different parties, in order to strengthen his government.
It remains to be seen how Cameron will perform as Foreign Secretary. However, his appointment is a sign that Sunak is serious about building a strong and effective government.sharemore_vert
