On October 20, Liz Truss, the country’s acting prime minister, announced her resignation. This freed up the position for a member of the Conservative Party to assume leadership of the government and prevent the impending economic crisis.
Truss has the regrettable distinction of serving as prime minister for just 44 days. George Canning previously held the record for the shortest term as prime minister, serving for just 119 days before passing away on August 8, 1827.
