Liz Truss resigns as UK Prime Minister

Liz Truss, the UK’s prime minister, has announced her resignation, effective immediately.

She made the statement at No. 10 Downing Street in London and claimed to have informed King Charles of her intention to step down as Conservative Party leader.

She added: “I recognise… given the situation I cannot deliver the mandate on which I was elected by the Conservative Party.”

The shortest period of time for a UK prime minister is Liz Truss’ 45 days in office.

Her departure was announced in the middle of Britain’s economic crisis and followed a slew of government policy changes that severely damaged Truss’s standing.

Thursday marked her 45th day in office and the day of her announcement.

Speaking outside Downing Street, Truss declared that she was unable to carry out the mandate for which she had been elected and that she would step down from her position once her replacement had been selected in a party leadership election.

George Canning, who served as prime minister for 119 days until passing away in 1827, has the second-shortest tenure.
