Over the years, numerous leaders have held power for a significant amount of time. Likewise, Prince Khalifa became Bahrain’s prime minister in 1971 after independence from Britain and held power until November 2020. Almost 50 years of his reign were spent in power, making him the longest-serving prime minister in the world. That being said, Britain’s most recent prime minister, Liz Truss, stepped down on October 20, 2022, officially becoming the shortest-serving prime minister in history.

Among British prime ministers, Liz Truss served the shortest tenure. The United Kingdom’s capability to pretend any longer that it hasn’t fallen into absolute kakistocracy was officially dismantled on Thursday after just 44 days in Downing Street under Truss’ regime.

Truss’s reign was an outcome of her predecessor, Boris Johnson, whose scandal-prone role in a colleague’s sexual misconduct led to his downfall in July. Apart from that, there has been a brutal “cost of living crisis” in the U.K., where rocketing food and energy prices have forced many people into hunger and darkness due to rampant inflation. Such times call for a competent replacement for Boris’ buffoonery.

However, due to the Conservative party’s peculiar arrangements, 170,000 grassroots party members were responsible for picking a new prime minister for the U.K.’s 70 million people for the third time in six years. Rishi Sunak, Johnson’s former finance minister, and Liz Truss, his foreign minister, were the only two possible candidates.

As a free market ideologue, Truss promised party members that she would slash taxes and increase economic growth in Britain. During a televised leadership interview in August, Sunak warned that such unfunded cuts would cause “misery for millions.” “We have a blinking red light on our economy, and inflation is the root of the problem,” Sunak said. He was worried that Liz Truss’s plans would exacerbate the situation even more.

Even though Tory lawmakers backed Sunak, members of the party were the ones who made the final decision. On Sept. 5, Truss was installed as the newly elected party leader. During her victory speech, Truss promised to deliver a bold plan to cut taxes and grow the economy, one of the buzzwords she frequently deploys during her speeches.

Furthermore, the leader said she would be able to deliver on “the energy crisis” and provide the Conservative party with a significant win at the next general election in 2024. Then Truss met with Queen Elizabeth II to be formally invited to form a government, thus becoming Prime Minister of the country.

Sadly, the queen passed away two days later, on September 8, 2022. With the British press and people focusing on mourning the monarch, Truss’s first days in Downing Street were devoid of direct scrutiny and something few prime ministers have experienced. As a result, she had the unique opportunity to contemplate her vision for the country and her strategies to achieve it.

However, Truss’s inability to live up to her words was one of the major reasons she resigned as the prime minister of the UK.
