Sunak Appoints Ex-British Prime Minister David Cameron As Foreign Secretary 

British Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak has appointed former Premier David Cameron as Foreign Secretary on Monday in a sweeping reshuffle of current cabinet.

Gatekeepers News reports that Downing Street confirmed the appointment after Cameron was seen walking into No 10 — the official residence and office of the British prime minister — to meet with Sunak.

Cameron’s appointment follows the appointment of James Cleverly as the new Home Secretary in place of Suella Braverman.

The reshuffle took place as Sunak attempted to reassert his authority, with his ruling Conservative Party trailing opposition Labour in opinion polls ahead of a general election due before January 2025.

Cameron served as prime minister from 2010 to 2016 and presided over Britain’s controversial Brexit vote, which ultimately led to his resignation.

Only current MPs or members of the House of Lords can become government ministers. Cameron quit as a Member of Parliament in 2016, but King Charles III on Monday confirmed him as a life peer, making him a lord and enabling him to assume the role of foreign secretary.

During his tenure as leader, Cameron was viewed as fervently pro-China. It is as yet unclear how his foreign policy agenda will adapt against a backdrop of increased Sino skepticism among Western nations and ongoing conflict in Ukraine and the Middle East.

″We are facing a daunting set of international challenges, including the war in Ukraine and the crisis in the Middle East,” Cameron said in a statement.

“At this time of profound global change, it has rarely been more important for this country to stand by our allies, strengthen our partnerships and make sure our voice is heard.”
