Liz Truss wins PM race, Priti Patel steps down as UK home secretary

Patel said she will continue to champion many of the policies and causes she has stood up for both inside and outside of government.

Priti Patel has decided to resign as the UK Home Secretary and plans not to serve in the cabinet of the newly-elected Prime Minister Liz Truss.

In a letter to outgoing UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Patel wrote, "It is my choice to continue my public service to the country and the Witham constituency from the backbenches, once Liz Truss formally assumes office and a new Home Secretary is appointed."

She congratulated Liz Truss on being elected as the country's new leader, and promised to give her support to her as the new Prime Minister. "From the backbenches, I will champion many of the policies and causes I have stood up for both inside and outside of Government," she added.

She expressed deep honour to have worked as the UK Home Secretary for the last three years. "I am proud of our work to back the police, reform our immigration system and protect our country," she wrote.
