Carmarthen West and South Pembrokeshire MS Samuel Kurtz has congratulated the country’s next Prime Minister, Liz Truss MP, on winning the Conservative Party 2022 leadership election.
Ms Truss received 81,326 votes to Rishi Sunak’s 60,399. The result was announced today following an eight-week long election campaign.
Commenting on the news, Samuel Kurtz MS said:
“Congratulations to Liz Truss for securing this victory. Whilst I supported Rishi Sunak, the Conservative Party has always had a wealth of talented individuals, and Liz is certainly one.
“The Party must now come together behind our new PM.
“We have some real challenges ahead of us – both abroad and at home – which the incoming Prime Minister must get to grips with. I have faith that Liz Truss has the ability to support the public as we navigate the oncoming winter.
“As we move forward, my priority is ensuring that the communities I represent get the assistance and support they need as we enter these challenging months ahead.
“I’ll be working with my colleagues in Westminster to ensure that support reaches every household in West Wales.”
