Speaking from a lectern in Downing Street, Miss Truss said she had told the King she was resigning as leader of the Conservative Party, acknowledging she “cannot deliver the mandate” that Tory members gave her for just over six weeks. ago gave.

She held talks with Sir Graham Brady, the backseat chairman of the 1922 Conservatives Committee, and agreed to a new leadership election to be ‘concluded within the next week’.

“This will ensure that we remain on track to implement our fiscal plan and maintain our country’s economic stability and national security,” she added, accompanied by husband Hugh O’Leary.

‘I will remain prime minister until a successor is elected.’

Her decision to resign will lead to a battle between the hopeful leaders of the Tory, who will face a daunting task to reinvigorate the party’s fate.

Labor leader Sir Keir Starmer demanded ‘now’ general elections so the nation can have ‘a chance at a fresh start’.

Without a general election, the Conservatives will be their third prime minister under the mandate Boris Johnson won in December 2019.

Sir Keir said: ‘The Conservative Party has shown that it no longer has a mandate to govern. The British public deserves a good word about the future of the country. They must be given the opportunity to compare the chaos of the Tories with Labour’s plans to clean up their mess, grow the economy for working people and rebuild the country for a fairer, greener future.

“We have to have a chance at a fresh start. We need a general election – now.”

The mechanism of how the next leader – and prime minister – will be elected has been unclear.

The pound rose after the announcement of the layoff after another volatile 24 hours for the currency amid political turmoil.

Liberal Democrat leader Sir Ed Davey said: ‘We don’t need another Conservative Prime Minister swinging from crisis to crisis. We now need a general election and the Conservatives out of power.”

Miss Truss had summoned Sir Graham to Downing Street for a hastily arranged meeting on Thursday morning, with sources saying she was “taking the temperature” of the Tory Party.

What Sir Graham told her was unclear, but she realized her time was up. “The statement was the result” of their conversation, a source confirms.

Miss Truss’ 44 days in office fall months behind the next shortest premiership of Tory statesman George Canning, who spent 118 full days as prime minister in 1827 before dying in office.
