Liz Truss wins Tory leadership contest to become next British PM

Liz Truss will become Britain’s next prime minister after beating Rishi Sunak in a divisive party leadership contest. The foreign secretary takes over from Boris Johnson, who was ousted by his own MPs in July. "I will deliver a bold plan to cut taxes and grow our economy," Truss said after the result was announced. "I will deliver on the energy crisis, dealing with people's energy bills, but also dealing with the long-term issues we have on energy supply." Al Jazeera’s Nadim Baba reports from London.
