British MPs will try to oust Prime Minister Liz Truss this week despite a Downing Street warning that it could trigger a general election, the Daily Mail reported.
More than 100 MPs from the ruling Conservative Party are prepared to submit letters of censure against Truss to Graham Brady, the head of the Conservative Party committee organizing the leadership race, the tabloid reported, basing its information on unidentified sources.
Britain has lost three prime ministers since voting to leave the European Union in 2016.
Lawmakers will urge Brady to either tell Truss that “his time is up” or to change party rules to allow an immediate vote of confidence in his leadership, according to the report.
Graham would resist the move, arguing that Truss, along with Jeremy Hunt, deserves the chance to set out economic strategy in a budget on October 31, the report added.
Separately, The Times reported that some MPs have held secret talks about replacing the prime minister.
