The UK's Truss resigns as prime minister.

 Liz Truss, the prime minister of the United Kingdom, announced her resignation on Thursday. Having just been in the position for two months, she resigned. Truss, who served 45 days in office, announced her resignation following a week-long emergency search for her replacement.

On Thursday, she announced her resignation in front of Downing Street. As soon as I took government, I had a vision for a low-tax, high-growth economy that would benefit from the liberties afforded by Brexit, said Truss.

"I recognize that, given the circumstances, I cannot fulfil the mandate for which I was chosen by the Conservative party," she continued. Therefore, I have informed His Majesty the King that I am stepping down as Conservative party leader.

"I saw Sir Graham Brady, the 1922 Committee's chairman. We've decided that the following week will see the conclusion of the leadership election. This will guarantee that we will continue representing our fiscal objectives and upholding our country's national security and economic stability. Until a replacement is selected, I shall serve as prime minister.

"We have decided that the following week will see the conclusion of the leadership election. This will guarantee that we stay on track to carry out our budgetary plan and uphold our nation's economic stability and security.

She declared, "I will serve as prime minister until a replacement has been selected.

After a senior minister quit and MPs revolted, the beleaguered British prime leader said it had been a "tough day," according to AFP.

Within her first six weeks in power, more than a dozen Conservative MPs begged Truss to step down after her tax-cutting proposals sparked a market collapse amid an already dire cost-of-living problem.

Although party rules now ban another leadership contest for a year, many more are reportedly believed to have written letters demanding her removal.
