Rufus Scrimgeour takes over as Minister for Magic as war breaks out

Scrimgeour is an ex-Auror and one who will face a threat rather than pretend it doesn’t exist. However, he quickly becomes bogged down in the politics and bureaucracy of the Ministry and fails to stop Voldemort’s actions.

Timeline Notes

We know from Fudge's conversation with the Muggle Prime MInister that Fudge was sacked on the 1st of July. Presumably Scrimgeour would have been named as his replacement immediately.
