The united kingdom's new Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, faced fresh calls for a general election by the official opposition on Wednesday, during the new leader's first prime minister's questions since taking office the day before.

British Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak is holding the first meeting before facing the opposition on Wednesday for the first time.

Sunak took office on Tuesday and appointed a government mixing allies with experienced ministers from the governments of two immediate predecessors, Boris Johnson and Liz Truss, as he tries to tackle britain's multiple economic problems.

During the regular House of Commons session known as prime minister's questions, opposition politicians are likely to fucis on the baggage the new ministers carry from the governments of Johnson, who quit in July after a slew of ethics scandals and truss whose givernment lasted just seven weeks.
