One of his senior advisers is set to be Dominic Cummings, lead strategist for the "Vote Leave" campaign in the 2016 European Union membership referendum.A contentious figure, Cummings was found to be in contempt of Parliament earlier this year for refusing to give evidence to a committee of lawmakers investigating "fake news."Several senior members of May's government who oppose a no-deal Brexit resigned Wednesday before they could be fired by Johnson".
As Johnson arrived in Downing Street from Buckingham Palace to take up the reins of power, Symonds was front and centre among dozens of staff and aides cheering his arrival from further down the road.
Mr Cummings clashed with officials and politicians while he was an adviser to Michael Gove in the coalition government, but Mr Johnson clearly believes his forthright style will help steer Brexit through.
Earlier May, who had formally tendered her resignation to Queen Elizabeth, left Downing Street after a three-year premiership marred by crises over Brexit. May said she will "continue with my duties in the House, from the backbenches".
The new prime minister has just over three months to make good on his promise to deliver Brexit by October 31.
There was a brief hiccup in the smooth handover when environmental protesters blocked Johnson's vehicle by forming a human chain across the road outside the palace.
The queen requested he form an administration.
Johnson would be the first British prime minister to Wednesday while in office for 250 years.
His first task was to appoint key members of the government - names that will give a hint of how he will handle Brexit, Britain's most significant decision in decades.
Japan FM to Summon South Korean Envoy Over WWII Forced Labour
The 78-year-old man's father-in-law was believed to have been be a victim of forced labour by Japanese firms during World War II. The government had proposed that South Korean and Japanese firms create a joint fund to compensate victims of forced labor.
Receiving a Turkish award in 2012 for his work as London mayor, Johnson was told of a belief in the Black Sea province of Rize, where then-premier Erdogan's family hail from, that no one could become prime minister unless they could play the kemence, a traditional stringed instrument.
Boris Johnson has become the UK's new prime minister, promising to defy "the doubters, the doomsters and the gloomsters" by completing Brexit with a deal by 31 October. His party has no majority in parliament so the Conservatives only govern with the support of 10 lawmakers from the Brexit-backing Democratic Unionist Party in Northern Ireland.
European Union negotiator Michel Barnier said he wanted to work with Johnson "to facilitate the ratification of the withdrawal agreement and achieve an orderly Brexit".
But he urged him to spend "wisely" and said such headroom was only possible if the United Kingdom government secures a Brexit deal with Brussels, in a thinly veiled attack on Boris Johnson's willingness to consider a no-deal Brexit and loosen the purse-strings.
The appointment of Mr Cummings, known for his campaign skills but also for a combative style that challenges the consensus, indicates Johnson is serious about going in hard on Brexit and wants a first-class political campaigner close.
He added: "To those who say it can't be done, do not underestimate this country".
High profile jobs are expected to be handed to allies Sajid Javid, Priti Patel, Dominic Raab, Liz Truss, and possibly Jacob Rees-Mogg.
The former foreign secretary, who was the firm favourite to win the contest, defeated Jeremy Hunt in the ballot of Tory members.
Another prominent Brexiteer, International Trade Secretary Liam Fox, was also ousted, along with Business Secretary Greg Clark - a vocal opponent of a no-deal Brexit. "That's what they need", United States President Donald Trump said.
