Liz Truss was named as Britain's next prime minister on Monday, winning a leadership race for the governing Conservative party at a time when the country faces a cost of living crisis, industrial unrest and a recession.
According to BBC, Liz Truss has promised to deal with surging energy costs and to cut taxes, after she won the Tory leadership contest to become the next PM.
Her plan, set to be announced on Thursday, is likely to include a freeze on energy bills - though precisely how it would work is still unclear.
Ms. Truss will be formally appointed by the Queen at Balmoral Castle later, after a final speech by Boris Johnson.
The 47-year-old, the UK's third woman PM, will then appoint her cabinet.
In her victory speech, Ms Truss promised a "bold" programme of tax cuts to grow the flagging economy and to prevent the UK tipping into recession.
She will officially take the reins of power on Tuesday, bringing Mr Johnson's turbulent premiership to an end less than three years after the Conservatives' resounding election victory in 2019.
