"I have spoken to His Majesty the King to inform him that he is resigning as leader of the Conservative Party," he said in a message on his Twitter account.

The former prime minister will go down in history as the lowest representative in the history of the United Kingdom and the fourth Conservative to fall in six years.

Truss confirmed her decision citing "the impossibility of carrying out the agenda" with which she was elected "in a period of great political and international instability."

"There will be leadership elections ending next week, I will remain prime minister until a successor is chosen," he said on Twitter.

Labour Party leader Keir Starmer suggested holding a "general election" "immediately".
