Challenges Await UK’s New PM Keir Starmer’s Government

The newly appointed Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Keir Starmer, wasted no time in addressing a key issue during his first cabinet meeting. In a news conference following the meeting, Starmer announced his intention to reverse the previous government’s plan to send undocumented migrants to Rwanda, labeling it a mere “gimmick.”

This bold stance by Starmer highlights the immediate challenges that his government will face as they navigate the complex world of UK politics. With Brexit looming and a global pandemic still raging, Starmer and his team will have their work cut out for them in the coming months.

It is clear that Starmer’s leadership will be tested as he tackles a long list of pressing issues, both domestic and international. The decision to scrap the controversial migrant plan is just the beginning of what promises to be a turbulent time for the new Prime Minister and his government.

Stay tuned as Al Jazeera’s own Rory Challands reports from London on the latest developments in UK politics and the challenges facing Starmer’s leadership.
