Prime Minister Rishi Sunak will be making a broadcast to the nation on Wednesday 11th January 2023.


The leader of the Conservative Party will be making his first speech of its kind in his capacity as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.

Sunak took over from his predecessor Liz Truss in October following her resignation after her disastrous economic policy brought her premiership to a swift end.

Truss had only replaced Boris Johnson in the role merely weeks earlier, after he resigned earlier in 2022 following a series of scandals.

YouGov's latest voting intention poll currently places the Conservative Party at 25 per cent against the Labour Party which is polling at 46 per cent.
