Britain's anti-Brexit Liberal Democrats name Jo Swinson as new leader
Monday, 22 July 2019 Britain's anti-Brexit Liberal Democrat party named lawmaker Jo Swinson as its new leader on Monday, as the party looks to translate a surge in voter support for its pro-European Union agenda into influence in a deadlocked parliament.
Jo Swinson has been elected leader of the Liberal Democrats. Ms Swinson beat former cabinet member Sir Ed Davey to replace Sir Vince Cable at the helm of the Lib Dems. Ms Swinson, an ex-minister, had been the bookies' favourite to take the party crown.
