The new Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Liz Truss, has resigned.
Truss lasted for only two months on the seat as the Prime minister.
She had defeated Rishi Sunak by 81,326 votes to 60,399 in an internal contest after Boris Johnson’s resignation in July.
The lawmaker was the Conservatives’ fourth head of the British government since 2015, promising to unleash Britain’s potential by going for growth and removing the obstacles holding the country back.
Having been formally appointed by Queen Elizabeth II on Sept. 6, Truss is now by far the shortest-serving prime minister in British history and will be remembered as one of the most calamitous. The previous holder of this record, George Canning, lasted 119 days in the early 19th century; Truss will serve about 50.
