Rishi Sunak pledges to serve as MP for full term if Tory party loses election

Rishi Sunak has committed to staying on as an MP for the full five-year term if the Conservative party loses the general election.

Speaking to journalists in Puglia, Italy, where he is attending the G7 summit, the prime minister said he intended to serve a full parliamentary term regardless of the overall result on 4 July.

Asked whether he would stay in the Commons for the next five years as prime minister if the Tory party won, or as an opposition MP if it lost, Sunak said: “Yes and yes.”

The Conservatives are languishing 20 points behind Labour in opinion polls and are widely expected to lose the election in less than three weeks’ time.
