Liz Truss Resigns – Who Will Be Our Next PM?

The Prime Minister has resigned on her 45th day in power. This afternoon (20th October, 2022), outside Number 10, Liz Truss said, ‘I came into office at a time of great economic and international instability. Families and businesses were worried about how to pay their bills. Truss added that she was elected ‘with a mandate to change this” – saying: ‘We delivered on energy bills.’ She says she recognises she “cannot deliver the mandate” on which she was elected.

Truss has spoken to King Charles, she said. There will be a leadership election ‘to be completed within the next week.’  However, Truss will remain as PM until a successor is appointed.
