UK finance minister Sajid Javid resigns

Sajid Javid resigned his post as UK finance minister amidst the first government reshuffle since the United Kingdom left the European Union, SIA reports.

Johnson had asked Javid to fire and replace all of his special advisers, British media reported. Rishi Sunak has been appointed Chancellor of the Exchequer to replace Javid, the prime minister's office said. Sunak is 39-years-old and the youngest person to hold the post.

He was first elected as a member of parliament in 2015. His father-in-law is the founder of tech company Infosys. Foreign secretary Dominic Raab, de-facto deputy prime minister Michael Gove, home secretary Priti Patel, and justice minister Robert Buckland will keep their current positions.
