LONDON: Boris Johnson appointed Sajid Javid Britain’s new treasury chief, one of the most senior jobs in cabinet, soon after taking oath as prime minister on Wednesday.

Javid will be responsible for spending and economic policy in Johnson’s government. Javid, a former banker and ex-home secretary, is the first ethnic minority politician to hold the post of Chancellor of the Exchequer.

Priti Patel was named home secretary, replacing Javid. Formerly interior minister under Theresa May, 49-year-old Javid takes over at the British treasury from Philip Hammond, who has held the job since 2016.

A former City of London banker whose father worked as bus driver after coming to Britain from Pakistan during the 1960s, he is considered a rising star within the Conservative party. He ran against Johnson in the leadership contest, but supported him once eliminated.
