- United Kingdom Prime Minister Liz Truss resigned Thursday after less than two months in office amid pressure following a reversal of economic policies that led to financial instability.
- Truss said that a leadership election will occur “within the next week” and that she will stay on as prime minister “until a successor has been chosen.”
- “Given the situation, I cannot deliver the mandate on which I was elected by the Conservative Party,” Truss said. I have therefore spoken to His Majesty the King to notify him that I am resigning as leader of the Conservative Party.”
