The former chancellor of the Exchequer is set to become the first person of color to lead Britain. He will face a range of dire economic challenges and promised to bring his “party and country together.”

A former chancellor of the Exchequer who is the son of Indian immigrants, Mr. Sunak, 42, won the contest to replace the ousted Liz Truss, who resigned under pressure last Thursday after her economic agenda caused turmoil. Mr. Sunak will be Britain’s third leader in seven weeks and the first prime minister of color in its history.
