As more lawmakers from her own Conservative Party said they could no longer support her, Truss announced Thursday that she would step aside so that a new leader could be chosen within the next week.

It ends a disastrous Downing Street tenure that had seemed doomed ever since Truss’s flagship economic agenda caused markets to panic and caused the value of the pound to drop.

With his 119-day tenure in Downing Street ending with his death in 1827, George Canning previously held the record for the shortest tenure in that building. Truss, on the other hand, lasted just 45 days before announcing her resignation.
