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.

NBC News reports that despite nearly all of the controversial policies having since been reversed by Kwarteng's successor, Jeremy Hunt, Britain is still dealing with the fallout.

A leadership election is expected to take place over the next week.

Whoever is selected will become Britain's fifth prime minister since the country decided to leave the EU
