MPs will try to remove UK PM Liz Truss this week: report

The Daily Mail reports that British MPs will try to oust Prime Minister Liz Truss this week, despite warnings from Downing Street.

The tabloid, citing unnamed sources, reported that more than 100 members of parliament (MPs) belonging to 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 that the lawmakers would urge Brady to tell the truce that “his time is up” or to change the political party’s rules to allow immediate confidence in his leadership, the report said.

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

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

Truss, who won the Conservative Party leadership last month by promising to cut taxes, is fighting for his political survival by abandoning critical parts of the programme.

The chaos has fueled discontent in the party, trailing the opposition Labor Party in opinion polls.
