  • Five years ago, Britain’s new finance minister Rishi Sunak wasn’t even a member of parliament.
  • Sunak, who became a member of parliament for the governing Conservative Party in 2015, had been tipped for promotion on Thursday after a rapid ascent through the ranks of government.
  • Sunak had been serving as Javid’s deputy in the finance ministry – a job focused on keeping control of public spending – after Johnson promoted him from a junior ministerial role upon taking office in July 2019.
