Andrew Bonar Law was a British Conservative Party statesman and Prime Minister, often referred to as the ‘Unknown Prime Minister’. He represented a half-way stage in the evolution of the modern Conservative Party. With his dedication and hard work, he climbed up the ladder of success in his political career and he used his business background to good advantage in promoting better organization and efficiency. Initially a businessman, he was approached by the Conservative Party to participate as their representative in elections. He was an unusual member of the party; he did not seek power or make any attempt to become a party leader. His prime objective as a member of the party was to execute political decisions keeping in mind welfare of the society and contribute significantly to unite the party people. He held many key positions in his flourishing career and served as a resourceful asset of the party. Even after his retirement from the party he returned to politics to support his party’s decision of appointing him as the Prime Minister of United Kingdom. But his health declined steadily, and he had to resign from this post soon after. Due to his short tenure as the Prime Minister, which lasted only a few months, he is famously remembered as the ‘Unknown Prime Minister’.
