In a highly unusual move, former UK prime minister David Cameron is named foreign secretary as part of a cabinet shuffle

It’s rare for a former leader, and a non-lawmaker, to take a senior government post. The government said Cameron will be appointed to Parliament’s unelected upper chamber, the House of Lords.

Cameron replaces James Cleverly who is taking up the home secretary post vacated by Suella Braverman, who was fired.
