United Kingdom Prime Minister Liz Truss might have a short stint at the office as British lawmakers will try to oust her this week despite Downing Street’s warning that it could trigger a general election, reported news agency Reuters quoting a report by the Daily Mail.

Over 100 British Members of Parliament belonging to the incumbent Conservative Party are ready to submit letters of no confidence against PM Truss to Graham Brady, the head of the Conservative Party’s committee which organises the leadership contest, reported the news agency via Daily Mail.

Engulfed in a political crisis, Britain has lost three prime ministers since it voted to leave the European Union in 2016. The MPs will urge Brady to tell Truss that “her time is up” or to change the political party rules to allow an immediate vote of confidence in her leadership, the Daily Mail report stated, quoted by the news agency.

While scores of MPs have turned against Truss, Graham is said to have been resisting the move arguing that Truss, along with newly appointed Chancellor Jeremy Hunt deserve a chance to set out economic strategy in a budget on October 31, the report added. Separately, The Times reported that some lawmakers have held secret discussions on replacing Truss with a new leader.

Truss, who won the Conservative Party leadership last month after promising to slash taxes, is fighting for her political survival after ditching key parts of the programme.

The chaos has fuelled discontent in the party, which is falling behind the opposition Labour Party in opinion polls. Amid a looming crisis Truss will meet with moderate Tory MPs this week in a bid to stave off a leadership coup, reported Daily Mail.
