Ex-England cricketer Monty Panesar has pulled out of running for George Galloway's political party, a mere eight days after declaring his candidacy.

Former cricket spin bowler declared his candidacy last week for the position of Member of Parliament in the West London area of Ealing Southall, representing the Workers Party of Britain under the leadership of the divisive figure, Mr. Galloway.

Panesar, whose tenure with the England cricket team spanned from 2006 to 2013, recently expressed that he requires additional time to "find my political home."

"The 42-year-old expressed, 'I recognize the importance of taking more time to listen, learn, and locate a political affiliation that truly reflects both my personal and political values.'"

"I extend my best wishes to The Workers Party, but I am eager to take some time to grow and establish my political foundation. This way, I'll be fully prepared to give my utmost performance the next time I step into the political arena."

In a recent interview, Panesar seemed uncertain about the Workers Party's commitment to withdraw from the NATO military alliance.

He implied that NATO's involvement was linked to immigration issues and that being a part of the alliance was complicating Britain's ability to manage its borders.

"He mentioned to Times Radio that our party believes this due to our lack of control over the borders."

Unauthorized immigration occurs, leading to a situation where these individuals often settle in economically disadvantaged neighborhoods. This influx can overburden local resources, impacting the everyday lives and welfare of the working-class residents in these areas.

"I believe a key motive for our party's interest is to discuss whether membership in NATO is truly essential."

When questioned about NATO, Panesar responded, "I'm not very knowledgeable about NATO."

He also mentioned that he would defer to Mr. Galloway regarding the Gaza matter, following Mr. Galloway's return to British politics in March with an unexpected win at the Rochdale by-election as the leader of the Workers Party.

Mr. Galloway secured the by-election victory by centering his campaign around the conflict in Gaza.
