UK PM Johnson marries in low-key ceremony
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson married his fiancee Carrie Symonds at Westminster Cathedral on May 29, capping a week of political drama with a wedding kept so under wraps that his office did not confirm it until the following day.
Johnson, 56, and Symonds, 33, have been living together in Downing Street since Johnson became prime minister in 2019. They announced their engagement in February of last year and their son was born in April the same year.
The last British prime minister to marry in office was Lord Liverpool in 1822. (Reuters, AP)
Netanyahu’s rivals try to seal pact to unseat him
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s rivals on May 31 sought to finalize a unity coalition that would unseat the veteran Israeli leader.
Centrist opposition chief Yair Lapid secured support May 30 from ultranationalist Naftali Bennett for a “change” government of ideologically disparate rivals.
If they hammer out a deal, the pair will split the premiership, with Bennett serving the first two years and Lapid the following two. No political party has ever won an outright majority in Israel’s parliament, forcing smaller factions to form a coalition. (Reuters, AP)
