Liz Truss (Official portrait, 2022)


British politician who served as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and Leader of the Conservative Party from September to October 2022. She is the shortest-serving prime minister in the history of the United Kingdom with a tenure of 50 days in office, resigning amid a financial and political crisis. She has been Member of Parliament (MP) for South West Norfolk since 2010. Truss served in various Cabinet offices under prime ministers David Cameron, Theresa May and Boris Johnson.

Truss attended Merton College, Oxford, and was president of Oxford University Liberal Democrats. In 1996, she graduated and joined the Conservative Party. She worked at Shell and Cable & Wireless, and was deputy director of the think tank Reform. After two unsuccessful attempts to be elected to the House of Commons, she was elected as the MP for South West Norfolk at the 2010 general election. As a backbencher, she called for reform in several policy areas including childcare, mathematics education and the economy. She founded the Free Enterprise Group of Conservative MPs and wrote or co-wrote a number of papers and books, including After the Coalition (2011) and Britannia Unchained (2012).

Truss served as Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Childcare and Education from 2012 to 2014, before being appointed to the Cabinet by Cameron as Secretary of State for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs in the 2014 cabinet reshuffle. Though she was a supporter of the Britain Stronger in Europe campaign for the UK to remain in the European Union in the 2016 referendum, she ardently supported Brexit after the result. After Cameron resigned in July 2016, Truss was appointed Secretary of State for Justice and Lord Chancellor by May, becoming the first female Lord Chancellor in the thousand-year history of the office. Following the 2017 general election, Truss was appointed Chief Secretary to the Treasury. After May resigned in 2019, Truss supported Johnson's bid to become Conservative leader. Following Johnson's appointment as Prime Minister, he appointed Truss as Secretary of State for International Trade and President of the Board of Trade. She took on the additional role of Minister for Women and Equalities in September 2019. She was promoted to Foreign Secretary by Johnson in the 2021 cabinet reshuffle. She was appointed the Government's chief negotiator with the European Union and UK chair of the EU–UK Partnership Council in December 2021. Following Johnson's resignation, Truss won the 2022 Conservative Party leadership election and formed a new government.

In 2000, Truss married Hugh O'Leary, a fellow accountant; the couple has two daughters. From 2004 until mid-2005, she had an extramarital affair with the married MP Mark Field, whom the Conservative Party had appointed as her political mentor. However, her marriage with O'Leary survived the affair.
