Liz Truss under pressure to quit as PM

 

British Prime Minister Liz Truss may have apologized to the country for her controversial economic policies, but most members of her Conservative Party now want Liz Truss to resign. Now apart from Boris Johnson, Indian-origin Rishi Sunak, Jeremy Hunt and Penny Mordent are also considered as strong contenders for the post of PM.

British Prime Minister Liz Truss may have apologized to the country over her controversial mini-budget, but most members of her Conservative Party now want Liz Truss to resign. A YouGov poll of 530 Conservative Party members found that 55% believe Liz Truss should resign as prime minister. At the same time, apart from Boris Johnson, Indian-origin Rishi Sunak, Jeremy Hunt and Penny Mordent are also considered to be strong contenders for the post of PM.

Prime Minister Liz Truss is being opposed within her own Conservative Party. With this development, rumours about Truss’s former opponent Rishi Sunak’s possible return to No. 10 Downing Street have intensified. In the event of a change in leadership, Sunak’s name has emerged as the frontrunner among UK speculators.

Rishi Sunak: Was warned on tax deductions

Party leaders say that Rishi Sunak had already warned about the tax cut policies of his rival (Liz Truss). However, after the government’s decision to cut taxes, Sunak remained silent.

A friend of Sunak was quoted by ‘The Sunday Times’ as saying that his silence has meaning. This is a part of the approach. This shows that the withholding of tax deduction was not warned like this. Sunak was sensing the situation. Now again the discussions have intensified that Rishi Sunak (42 years) is going to return to the government again in the UK.

Boris Johnson: More Popularity Than Liz Truss

Now it is expected that he will try to make a comeback. A YouGov poll revealed that Boris Johnson is more popular than Truss, 58. Yet about two-thirds did not respond well to him. Johnson has kept himself low profile since his resignation. He gave a speech in America last week, but he did not say anything on the current crisis in Britain.

Jeremy Hunt: Was a strong contender in the last two elections

Truss’s new Finance Minister Jeremy Hunt was a strong candidate in the last two elections for the post of PM. In 2019 also he was in the fray for the post of PM but lost to Johnson in the final run-off. This year also he was last in the process of election by MPs. The appointment to the second most powerful position in the government has brought the former foreign secretary back to the center of politics. According to a YouGov poll, some Conservative lawmakers have supported Hunt.

Penny Mordent: Truss was given a strong fight

Penny Mordent is a member of the current cabinet. It was believed that she would replace Boris Johnson. Truss was hit in the run-off against Rishi Sunak. The former Defense and Trade Minister is quite popular at the grassroots level. In 2016, he strongly supported Brexit. However, he faced criticism in the recent leadership race from Conservative members. Some accused him of being ineffective in previous roles. However, after the speculation of Truss leaving the post intensified, his name has started being discussed again.

Truss mini-budget hanging

The Liz Truss government recently presented a mini-budget in Parliament. In this budget, he took steps to check tax hike and inflation. But soon these decisions were withdrawn by the government. When Liz Truss took over as prime minister, the people of Britain, who were facing back-breaking inflation, had high hopes from him. One of the main reasons for this was also that Truss had made populist promises to the public in his election campaign. A major election promise that propelled him to the seat of power was a tax cut.

Liz Truss cut taxes after coming to power, but she reneged on her election promise on October 2. He withdrew the decision to cut corporate tax. Due to his decision, the voices of rebellion are being heard within the party. Live TV
