UK Prime Minister , Liz Truss Resigns. NBC News reports that after only six weeks in office, Truss resigned on Oct. 20. . That makes her Britain’s shortest-serving prime minister ever. I recognize that given the situation I cannot deliver the mandate on which I was elected by the Conservative Party, Liz Truss, via statement. I have therefore spoken to his majesty the king to notify him that I am resigning as leader of the Conservative Party, Liz Truss, via statement. I will remain as prime minister until a successor is chosen, Liz Truss, via statement. Kwasi Kwarteng, her finance minister, was fired just last week. Their "mini-budget" sent the U.K. into a political and economic tailspin. .
