Amid party discontent, British Prime Minister steps down less than two months into term

Only six weeks into her term as British Prime Minister, Liz Truss has resigned.

During her short-lived stint as PM markets crumbled and her party rebelled against her financial policies.

Yesterday (Wednesday), Truss said she would stay in power and that she was not a quitter, but later a senior minister quit and a vote in the House of Commons became chaotic.

Today, she resigned saying she cannot deliver the mandate on which she was elected.
