Liz Truss’s Resignation: Who will save the Conservative Party?

Reading Time: 3 minutes

British Prime Minister Liz Truss threw in the towel after her government was marred with political instability since she assumed office.

Ms. Truss, 47, became the Prime Minister on September 6 after a former PM, Boris Johnson, succumbed to widely called resignation.

Since the country seized to be a member of the European Union in 2020, it has struggled to live up to the promises made to the Leavers, who were conned into believing the EU was responsible for their atrocities.

As the country’s cost of living is sorer, the country’s leadership is thrown into chaos with no solution in sight for the average brits.

After just two months of becoming the PM, the Conservative party has once again proved to the people that they have run out of ideas and leaders who can rekindle the trust it had lost.

Trust said in a statement outside No 10 Downing Street on Thursday that “I cannot deliver the mandate on which I was elected by the Conservative Party.”

Ms. Truss has attracted criticism after his short-lived economic policy threw the economy into disarray, increasing the doubts the people have for a Tory government.

Like her predecessor, Truss said he would remain in her position pending when the party finds a replacement. The Prime Minister is undoubtedly the shortest-serving leader in British history.

The party has assured that a new PM will be chosen at the end of the week. Interested candidates include House of Commons leader Penny Mordaunt, former Treasury Chief Rishi Sunak, who lost the leadership contest to Truss, and Defence Secretary Ben Wallace.

There are speculations that the ousted former Prime Minister Boris Johnson could be among the candidates who might be interested in the position.

Nadine Dorries, an ardent supporter of Boris Johnson, hinted that he spoke with the former PM at lunchtime. “It is now down to MPs to decide who it is that they want back,” Nadine told journalists.

“There is only one MP who has the mandate of the British public, who won a general election only three years ago with an 80-seat majority, and that was Boris Johnson.”

Liz Truss came to power after his popular low-tax, low-regulation economy policy. However, the disastrous policy led to soaring inflation and weak economic growth.

Under Liz Truss, the country is worst off, and many who had criticized Boris Johnson’s administration are calling for his return. British pounds crashed, driving the cost of mortgages to soar, the cost of electricity has remained a threat to survival, and Liz Truss knew she had run out of time in just 45 days.

On Wednesday, Truss vowed to stay in power, saying she is ” a fighter and not a quitter,” but the pressure and rebellion within her party pushed her to the brink to tender her resignation 24hrs later.

The tory government lacks a true leader who would rebuild the trust it had lost from the people. Who would save the party from internal destruction as three PM Ministers have proven disastrous despite high hopes?

The conservative party has become a masquerade with no identity as it struggles to hold on to power with no solution to economic instability.

Before leaving, Truss did not forget to point out that she was left with the problem she had struggled to resolve. She 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.”
