Former United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson will be running once again in the 2024 general election from Uxbridge and South Ruislip, APA reports citing the Independent.

According to The Telegraph, Johnson told his local Conservative Party leaders that he will be fighting the elections in a bid to become a Member of Parliament once again. All members of the Conservative Party will have to inform the leadership about their will to compete in the elections by Monday and Johnson is expected to throw his hat in the race.

The former PM has represented Uxbridge and South Ruislip in the past and in case of a victory, he will receive any chance to launch a leadership campaign after losing his seat in 2021. He was touted as a competition to Rishi Sunak but Johnson opted out of the latest race citing personal reasons.

“Uxbridge and South Ruislip Conservative Association fully support Boris Johnson as our local MP and candidate at any future election,” Richard Mills, the chairman of his local association, said.
