England's Prime Minister Boris Johnson appointed Indian MP Suella Braverman as the new Attorney General of England and Wales. She was administered the oath of office at the Royal Courts of Justice here on Monday. Suella is the second woman to hold this position in British judicial history and the first woman Attorney General appointed in a Conservative Party government.
According to media reports, Johnson had included 39-year-old Suella in his cabinet earlier this month, reshuffling his cabinet. On her new responsibility, she said, "It is a special honor to take oath as Attorney General. Restoring confidence in the crime justice system will be my top priority."
Suella, who studied law from Cambridge University, was first elected to the House of Commons from the Fram for the lower house of the British Parliament in 2015. She was also elected from here in 2017 and 2019. Suella was also part of the European Research Group, which was talking to the European Union in favor of Brexit. She is the child of parents from Kenya and Mauritius. Her parents' ancestors were taken there a long time ago.
