UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has assured that he will publish his financial records «soon» and defended the importance of being «transparent» after completing his first 100 days at the head of Downing Street.
Thus, he has reiterated that he will finally publish these documents after it came to light that his wife, Akshata Murty, has her tax residence outside the United Kingdom, according to information from the newspaper ‘The Guardian’.
Since then, the opposition has repeatedly called for him to make this information public. Since he became Prime Minister of the country, he has indicated that he would publish the financial records, although he has now clarified that the documents «are being prepared».
For her part, his wife has assured that she will continue to pay taxes in the United Kingdom for her work activities on British soil. Sunak is one of the MPs with the highest wealth in the British Parliament, something that has been used by the opposition to criticize the president.
Although there is no long tradition in the United Kingdom of the Prime Minister publishing this type of information, his predecessors have been doing so for years.
On his first 100 days in office, Sunak has said that they have been «challenging», but he has been proud of «what has been achieved», including the «stabilization of the market and the economy».
