The United Kingdom's politics has changed ever since Indian-born Rishi Sunak held the office. The atmosphere looks different in the U.K’s politics mainly because Mr. Sunak is unlike the conventional prime ministers of Great Britain. To begin with, he is an Indian. This is the first time in the history of U.K politics that an ‘outsider politician’ is leading the country. Maybe colonialism is backfiring?
All jokes aside, Sunak has many challenges to deal with after the departure of the previous president, Boris Johnson. On November 15, 2022, the U.K’s newly elected prime minister will be appearing on an international platform for the first time.
However, the COP27 summit has already kicked off in Glasgow, Egypt. Leaders of countries across the world have already kicked off their presence at the mega event. Essentially, the summit aims at highlighting and addressing global issues. Throughout the world, leaders join hands and share their ideas on the current crises that the world is facing. Thus, this year is no different when it comes to the COP27 summit in Egypt.
However, things look different for U.K's politics—for the first time, the leader representing Great Britain at the mega event will not be someone from England. Instead, it will be the Indian-born politician Rishi Sunak.
According to the latest sources, here is what the U.K’s new prime minister, Rishi Sunak, will be talking about at the upcoming COP27 summit 2022:
First thing first: The key point of Mr. Sunak’s address in Glasgow will be addressing climate change. It is no secret that climate change is one of the growing humanitarian crises of our time. In 2022, climate change became more apparent in Europe. The climate was extremely hot in Europe this summer. Glaciers were melting at a rapid pace. The temperature that was recorded this summer was record-breaking. Thus, the U.K’s leaders understand that climate change is a real issue. Not only in the U.K but throughout the world. And this is what the U.K’s prime minister will address in his maiden appearance at the Glasgow summit.
Thus, reports tell us that Sunak will outline climate change and its impacts on the world. Specifically, the U.K’s prime minister will elaborate on its “clean growth” initiative to address climate change.
Furthermore, Rishi Sunak will also be offering suggestions that world leaders can consider to address climate change. The U.K’s new prime minister will also be offering “some deals” with his fellow politicians.
According to the latest report from BBC, Rishi Sunak will be "closely working" on resolving the issues that were left incomplete by Boris Johnson. Likewise, he will have a tough responsibility on his shoulders in addressing "the internal political issues" of the U.K ruling party.
