Liz Truss U.K Prime Minister Resignation
Truss announced her resignation Thursday, 20th October 2022, after just 44 days in office. She was the third Prime Minister and quickly lost favor with fellow Conservatives and the wider public following a disastrous “mini budget” on 23rd September 2022 that spooked markets, sent borrowing rates up, and tanked the British pound. She fired her finance minister Kwasi Kwarteng and replaced him with Jeremy Hunt in the wake of the fallout, but it was not enough to ensure her political survival.
Liz will remain in office until a new Conservative Party leader is chosen via a leadership contest, which is expected to conclude on 28th October 2022, nevertheless, Truss’s brief stint has earned her an unfortunate place in history as Britain’s shortest-serving Prime Minister.
