UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s choice to bring back Cameron aims to please moderates but has sparked dissent from the party’s right wing.

Labour’s Pat McFadden criticized the move, stating it contradicts Sunak’s promise of change from Tory failures.

The decision to appoint Cameron as foreign secretary was announced after Sunak sacked Suella Braverman and replaced her with foreign secretary James Cleverly.
