British Queen Elizabeth II has approved the appointment of Nadhim Zahawi as finance minister after the shock resignation of Rishi Sunak.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson late Tuesday named his Iraqi-born education secretary, Nadhim Zahawi, as finance minister.

Downing Street said Queen had approved the appointment of Zahawi, who came to Britain as a child with his Kurdish family not speaking any English, before forging a lucrative business career.

The prime minister named another loyalist, Michelle Donelan, to take Zahawi´s place at the education ministry.

Following his appointment, Zahawi said the government needed to rebuild and grow the economy, and he would look at all options to do that.
