The resignation means that Truss will go down as the shortest-lived U.K. prime minister in history. Instead of stepping down immediately as prime minister, Johnson announced that he would stay on until his party had selected a successor. It was then up to the wider members of the Conservative Party to pick between the top two. With pressure mounting and growing disquiet among the wider public and members of her own party, Truss resorted yet again to drastic measures.
