Former Prime Minister of Great Britain Boris Johnson has decided not to leave the political arena and run in the next parliamentary elections.
After stepping down as Prime Minister, he remained in the House of Commons as an ordinary MP.
According to the Daily Telegraph, Johnson announced this in a conversation with the members of the district department of the party in the Uckbridge and South-Ryslip constituencies in the western part of London. Johnson has represented the area in the lower house of parliament since 2015.
Johnson is expected to inform the Conservative leadership by December 5 of a final decision on whether to run for party leader and prime minister in the 2024 general election.
Nevertheless, neither the conservatives nor any leader is in a favorable position today.
According to the results of the latest survey by the polling company YouGov, the rating of conservatives has fallen to 22 percent.
Meanwhile, the position of opposition Labor has strengthened and the rating has reached 47 percent, thus the difference was 25 percent.
Johnson held the position of Prime Minister of Britain from July 24, 2019 to September 6 of this year.
After Johnson’s departure, the current Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, headed the government for a while.
