The UK's energy crisis this winter will push millions of people into poverty unless the government releases more money to help needy households pay their fuel bills. This was stated by British Prime Minister candidate Rishi Sunak, reports Reuters.

"The first rule of any crisis is to acknowledge that you are facing one. We are facing an energy crisis," Sunak said in a statement on Saturday.

"I will support people that need urgent help to pay their bills this winter. Failure to do this would push millions, including many pensioners, into a state of destitution."

Sunak fleshed out his energy plans, saying he will deregulate North Sea fossil fuel production, cut energy waste by insulating more homes, and reform licensing for offshore wind, solar and nuclear power.

According to public opinion polls, his rival Liz Truss was well ahead of Sunak in the race for a majority vote among members of the ruling Conservative Party. The results are to be announced on September 5th.
