British prime minister Rishi Sunak said that he is “totally up for the fight” of pitching his policies to the electorate to win another term. The UK general election is expected to take place in the second half of the year. The 43-year-old Indian-origin leader said that he had reasons to be optimistic because the economy was “pointing in the right direction and the future is going to be better”. “At the beginning of this year there is a sense that the country is pointing in the right direction,” he said, adding, “Because economic conditions have improved, because the plan is working, you are starting to see mortgage rates come down and we have been able to cut taxes. I do believe those pressures are starting to ease and that hopefully over the course of this year, we can continue to make even more progress.” Dig Deeper
