New UK Prime Minister -- David Cameron

May 11, Gordon Brown stepped down from his position of prime minister allowing David Cameron to become the new prime minister and to form a coalition government.

Cameron enters office on a promise to cut government spending and lessen the budget deficit. He also begins his work without a majority in Parliament. He is currently forming a cabinet in collaboration with the Liberal Democrats. The two parties have already published an agreement that shows the compromises the two parties are willing to make to work together to cut government waste.
