UK Prime Minister Liz Truss announced her resignation on Thursday after spending just 45 days in post, a new record for the shortest-lived British Prime Minister.

Speaking outside 10 Downing Street Thursday, Truss said because she was unable to deliver the programme she had been elected to: reforming the United Kingdom into a low-tax, high-growth economy.

Truss said:

“…I recognise though given this situation I cannot deliver the mandate on which Iw as elected by the Conservative party. I have therefore spoken to His Majesty the King to notify him I am resigning as leader of the Conservative Party. This morning I met the Chairman of the e1922 Committee, Sir Graham Brady. We have agreed there will be a leadership election to be completed within the next week.

This will ensure we remain on a path to deliver our fiscal plans to maintain our country’s economic stability and national security. I will remain as Prime Minister until a successor has been chosen. Thank you.”

Truss’ resignation comes 45 days after she was handed power by Her Majesty the Queen from previous leader Boris Johnson, who stood down after a series of scandals rocked his government.

Truss now has the dubious honour of being the shortest-lived UK leader ever.
