Leo Varadkar, the right-wing son of an immigrant Indian doctor, has been formally elected Ireland’s youngest and first gay Taoiseach.
Accepting his elevation to the most powerful office in the country, the 38-year-old said: “I’ve been elected to lead but I promise to serve.”
The new ruling Fine Gael leader won 57 votes in the Irish parliament against 50 for his nomination as premier.
Some 45 parliamentarians abstained in the vote.
