Britain’s political crisis: Liz Truss likely to be ousted by British MPs soon

New Delhi: British MPs will try to remove Prime Minister Liz Truss this week despite Downing Street’s warnings that it could trigger a general election, the Daily Mail reported. The tabloid, citing unnamed sources, reported that more than 100 members of parliament (MPs) from the governing Conservative Party are set to submit letters of no-confidence in the truce to Graham Brady, the head of the Conservative Party’s committee, which organizes the leadership contest.

Britain, which is in political crisis, has lost three prime ministers since voting to leave the European Union in 2016.

The report said lawmakers would urge Brady to tell Truss that “his time is up” or to change political party rules to allow an immediate trust vote under his leadership.

The report said Brady is opposed to the move, arguing that Truss, along with newly appointed Chancellor Jeremy Hunt, deserves a chance to set economic strategy in a budget on October 31.

Separately, The Times reported that some lawmakers have secretly discussed replacing Truss with a new leader.

After UK PM Liz Truss takes a U-turn will Britain get its first Indian-origin PM in Rishi Sunak?

It is likely that the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Liz Truss, will face rebellion from within her own party in the coming days, and she will be removed from office just a month after Tory MPs were elected after a round of voting. .

Following speculation that Liz Truss would be removed from the post of PM, rumors of several candidates taking her place surfaced through local media reports. One of the most popular names to emerge as the PM candidate was Indian-origin politician Rishi Sunak.

Sunak was Truss’s opponent during the Conservative Party’s voting round for the prime ministerial election after Boris Johnson stepped down. Although he lost in the last few rounds of voting by Tory MPs, he is one of the most popular names to have emerged as the prime ministerial face for Britain.

If the rebellion goes ahead and Rishi Sunak is supported by all Tory party leaders, he may become the first Indian-origin prime minister of the United Kingdom. Apart from Sunak, many more candidates have come forward who can take his place if the truce is out.

The top candidates likely to run for PM if Liz Truss is out are Boris Johnson, Rishi Sunak, Penny Mordant and Ben Wallace.

UK PM Liz Truss took to her post a little more than a month after the country started economic turmoil, as she took a complete U-turn on much of her fiscal and tax-related policies. In a recent interview with the BBC, Truss issued a public apology for his policies.

During his interview, the PM of the United Kingdom said, “I want to accept responsibility and apologize for the mistakes… we went too far and too fast.” Meanwhile, Truss said he was “fully committed to giving for this country”, despite rumors that he had been ousted.
