July 15 , 2014
Britain’s Prime Minister David Cameron has carried out a major reshuffle in the parliament.
William Hague will step down as British foreign secretary and take on his new role as the House of Commons leader. Calling Hague “a close confidante, a wise counselor and a great friend,” Cameron described him as “one of the leading lights of the Conservative Party for a generation.”
Other ministers who have left the government include Kenneth Clarke, the former chancellor, policing minister Damian Green and universities and science minster David Willetts.
