Call for Liz Truss’s resignation
There is now a demand for the resignation of Liz Truss in the Conservative Party. A group of senior leaders has decided to call on Liz Truss to resign following the resignation of the Finance Minister. Senior party leaders have decided to take the resignation of the PM after discussion. British Foreign Minister James Cleverly has warned that it would be a disastrously bad idea to consider replacing Truss as Tory leader, just a month after he was elected in a leadership battle with former finance minister Rishi Sunak on September 6.
Liz Truss wins election on tax cuts, so blaming others is wrong
Senior Tory lawmakers, including former cabinet ministers, believe the prime minister’s position is unstable as Quarteng was carrying out his policies. He said Liz Truss campaigned on these tax cuts. Liz Truss won the Tory leadership position on the basis of this program. So it is absurd for him to blame Kwasi. Tory leaders warned that Truss was at fault if he thought the Quarteng had no political base within the parliamentary party.
Jeremy Hunt to be the new Finance Minister
British Prime Minister Liz Truss may appoint Jeremy Hunt as the new finance minister. Hunt supported Rishi Sunak during the prime ministerial election. Her appointment would enable Liz Truss to say that she is reaching out to those parts of the party that did not support her to become PM. Jeremy Hunt was the runner-up in the election held during the appointment of Boris Johnson as Prime Minister. However, he was already out of the competition in the current election.
