UK PM, Liz Truss has announced her resignation after just six weeks in role as prime minister of British Government.

There will be a leadership election within a week, Ms Truss said.

It comes after the chair of the 1922 Committee,Sir Graham Brady entered No 10 for a crisis meeting with the prime minister, followed by party chair Jake Berry.

Ms Truss’ brief stint as leader involved a mini Budget that spooked the market, the sacking of her close ally and chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng, the resignation of home secretary Suella Braverman and chaos in Westminster around a confidence vote where there were allegations of senior Tories manhandling and bullying colleagues.

Just yesterday she said”I cannot deliver the mandate on which I was elected by the Conservative Party”.

Conservative Member of Parliament Simon Hoare said Liz Truss only had 12 hours to save her premiership.

Truss for Prime Minister called for her to go in addition to more than a dozen of Members of Parliaments.
