Who is the man to replace Boris Johnson while he is fighting with coronavirus?
Downing Street No. 10 announces that Raab will now replace Johnson as prime minister “when necessary.” Boris Johnson is still at the head of the government, but his substitution is Dominic Rabb.
British diplomacy chief Dominic Raab, a member of the Conservative Party’s new Guard of Politicians, will officially replace Prime Minister Boris Johnson as he battles a coronavirus at the St Thomas’ Hospital intensive care unit.
A confident Eurosceptic, a third-day black belt in karate and an amateur boxer, Raab, 46, succeeded Johnson as Foreign Minister.
Dominic Raab is “solid and sharp-witted. He is not a person you can intimidate,” said his former boss, former British Brexit minister David Davis. “He’s loyal and disciplined,” he states.
It is representative of a new generation of conservatives who have entered parliament in the last ten years.
Raab is the son of a Jewish refugee from the Czech Republic who arrived in Britain in 1938. Dominic’s father died of cancer when he was just 12, and his mother raised him in the Anglican faith.
He studied law at the prestigious universities of Oxford and Cambridge.
As a young lawyer specializing in international law, he took a job at the law firm Linklaters and later joined the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, where he tackled terrorism at sea, said in reports.
His biography also states that in 2003 “he was appointed to the diplomatic team of British lawyers who investigated the war crimes of Slobodan Milosevic in The Hague.”
In 2003, he was appointed to the diplomatic team of British attorneys who investigated the war crimes of Slobodan Milosevic, Radovan Karadzic, and Charles Taylor in The Hague.
Between 2006 and 2008, he was Cabinet Chief David Davis, then the Conservative shadow interior minister.
He was first elected to the British Parliament in 2010. Five years after, he first entered the executive branch, when he became the Deputy Minister of Justice in the government of James Cameron.
A year later, on the crucial eve of the Brexit referendum, he had already become an activist in the EU exit campaign.
He returns to government in 2017 first as Justice Minister and then Housing. Teresa May appointed him Minister for Brexit following the resignation of David Davis in 2018. Still, Rab did not hesitate to leave the office for three months after being dissatisfied with the Brexit agreement that May had made with Brussels.
After Theresa May’s resignation, he ran for president of the Conservative Party, but dropped in the second round, or finished sixth. He then endorsed the later winner, Johnson, who retaliated by appointing him, the foreign minister.
He is also married to two sons, Peter and Joshua.
