Braverman, Britain’s shortest-serving interior minister since 1834

Interior Minister Braverman, appointed 43 days ago by British Prime Minister Liz Truss, announced that he was leaving his post on the grounds that he technically violated the rules after sending an official document using his personal e-mail address.

Thus, Braverman became the shortest-serving interior minister after Arthur Wellesley, the 1st Duke of Wellington, who stepped down 30 days later in 1834.

Braverman served as Attorney General for the UK from 13 February 2020 until 6 September when he was appointed Home Secretary.

Finance Minister Kwasi Kwarteng, who Prime Minister Truss dismissed on 14 October, also remained in office for 38 days.
