James Cleverly denies saying he’ll step out at the next election.

James Cleverly, the foreign secretary, has called as “nonsense” rumours that he was thinking about leaving parliament at the upcoming general election.

cleverly stated he was “standing at the next election” following newspaper rumours that he was debating whether to run.

Cleverly reportedly expressed reluctance to run for office in his Essex electorate of Braintree, according to “sources close to him” cited by The Telegraph.

According to the publication, he wished to spend more time with his wife, who is recuperating from cancer, and his children and was disturbed by the “complete mess” of internal disputes in his party.

Foreign Secretary since September of 2022, Cleverly, however, tweeted: If the @Telegraph had come to me directly, I would’ve told them that this is total nonsense.

I’m running in the upcoming election after being re-elected.

Another claim that Cleverly will step down was refuted by a representative for him. The 53-year-old was originally chosen as the Braintree MP in 2015 and retained the position in 2019 with an overwhelming majority of about 25,000.

Prior to the next election, Rishi Sunak must deal with a major exodus of MPs due to the Tories’ decline in the polls. Steve Brine, who previously shared his exit strategy with former justice and health secretaries Dominic Raab and Sajid Javid, did so on Friday.

In a letter addressed to the local Conservative association, Brine, who has served as Winchester’s representative since 2010 and who chairs the Commons social care and health committee, announced his resignation.

Nadine Dorries hasn’t legally resigned as a member of parliament, but Boris Johnson, Nigel Adams, and Nigel Adams all made announcements about it a fortnight ago.

A byelection for the Somerset district of Somerton and Frome will be held on July 20 as a result of David Warburton’s resignation announcement over the weekend. After Johnson’s resignation, there are going to be byelections in Uxbridge and South Ruislip in west London, as well as in Selby and Ainsty in North Yorkshire, to choose Adams’ successor.
