Breaking : British Prime Minister Liz Truss Resigns Few Days After Assuming Office


Liz Truss has announced she is resigning as Prime Minister.

She said: "I recognise though 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.

"This morning I met the chairman of the 1922 Committee Sir Graham Brady. We have agreed that there will be a leadership election to be completed within the next week.

"This will ensure that we remain on a path to deliver our fiscal plans and maintain our countries economic stability and national security. I will remain as Prime Minister until a successor has been chosen."
