Liz Truss’ historical resignation from Britain’s premiership becomes the shortest – ever tenure in the UK records.
Truss, who has served for only 45 days in the UK prime minister capacity, announced she’s resigning today.
The news of her resignation first broke on Britain TV and spread like wildfires outside Downing Street and over internet.
Media reported that Truss could not deliver the mandate she was elected and had notified the King about her resignation.
This was after she she met with 1922 Committee chairman Sir Graham Brady today and they agreed there will be a leadership election within the next week.
“This will ensure that we remain on a path to deliver our fiscal plans and maintain our country’s economic stability and national security”. Truss quoted in the Media.
She becomes the shortest – ever serving UK premiere after George Canning, 119 days tenure in 1827, after his death.
Truss replaced Boris Johnson who resigned few months ago.
Trouble for her pressurized resignation began when her first Chancellor, Kwasi Kwarteng, spooked the financial markets with his mini-budget on 23 September.
This morphed into widespread anger within the Conservatives prompting her to resign.
Last night, the House of Commons dramatically voted on fracking demanding for Truss’ stepdown.
