When did Kwasi Kwarteng become Chancellor?

Kwarteng was appointed Chancellor of the Exchequer under Liz Truss’ government on Tuesday, September, 6, 2022.

Kwarteng replaced Nadhim Zahawi who had stepped into the role in July 2022, after Rishi Sunak announced his resignation and entered the Tory Leadership contest.

Kwarteng is expected to reveal his plan for fixing the nation’s economy, including his mini-budget on Friday, September, 23.

Releasing the details of his mini-budget will be one of his first major tasks since entering the role at the start of September.

Liz Truss has inherited a flagging economy, with inflation at a 40-year high, making Kwarteng’s challenges even greater than previous Chancellors.

He is expected to reveal his plans for providing financial aid to Ukraine during Russia’s ongoing invasion, as well as his plans for billions of pounds worth of tax cuts.

Prior to his appointment to the role, Kwarteng stated that he felt Truss’ government had “two urgent responsibilities”: to help the nation facing “severe price shocks” and to boost economic growth.

He explained, “Action is needed to get families and businesses through this winter and the next”.

Is Kwasi Kwarteng married?

In 2019 Kwarteng married Harriet Edwards, a senior solicitor at the accounting firm, KPMG.

The couple have been married for nearly three years and have one child together.
