BREAKING: UK Prime Minister Resigns After 45 Days In Office

The United Kingdom Prime Minister, Liz Truss has resigned after spending just 45 days in office.

Her resignation comes after a key minister quit and Tory MPs rebelled in chaotic parliamentary votes, BBC reports.

Ms Truss was elected by the Tory membership in September, but she lost authority after a series of U-turns.

“I recognise that given the situation, I cannot deliver the mandate on which I was elected by the Conservative Party.

“I have therefore spoken to His Majesty the King to notify him that I am resigning as leader of the Conservative Party,” Truss said.

A leadership election for MPs to select her successor will be “completed within the next week,” AFP quoted her to have said.
