LONDON: Members of the British Parliament are preparing to oust newly elected Prime Minister Liz Truss and a decisive step could be taken this week, with parliament warning that in such a case things would lead to a new election.
According to the British news agency, more than 100 members from the Conservative Party are ready to submit letters of no confidence against Liz Truss to the head of the party committee, Graham Brady.
Political crisis in Britain is not new, three prime ministers have been sacked since Britain voted to leave the EU in 2016. MPs will urge Brady to head Liz Truss. Tell them bluntly that your time is up.
Members will also ask that if it is difficult to remove them immediately, then change the party rules to allow for an immediate no-confidence vote.
Citing confidential sources, the report also states that Graham Brady has resisted the move by MPs and has told MPs in response that Liz Truss and newly elected Chancellor Jeremy Hunt have the right to vote. It is up to them to formulate their economic strategy for the coming budget on October 31.
Similarly, The Times reports that some MPs have also secretly consulted on who will replace Liz Truss after she is removed.
