LONDON: Prime Minister UK Liz Truss said that she was resigning as Prime Minister, brought down by her economic programme that sent shockwaves through markets and divided her Conservative Party just six weeks after she was appointed. A leadership election will be completed within next week.

Speaking outside door of her Number 10 Downing Street office, Truss accepted that she could not deliver promises she made when she was running for Conservative leader, having lost faith of her party.

“I recognise though, given situation, I cannot deliver mandate on which I was elected by Conservative Party. I have therefore spoken to His Majesty King to notify him that I am resigning as leader of Conservative Party,” she said.

“This morning I met chairman of 1922 Committee, Sir Graham Brady. We’ve agreed that there will be a leadership election to be completed within next week. This will ensure that we remain on a path to deliver our fiscal plans and maintain our country’s economic stability and national security.”­
