Rishi Sunak affirmed that he would certainly continue to serve as a Member of Parliament, even if he is not victorious in the upcoming general election.

The prime minister described his North Yorkshire constituency as "wonderful" and stated he would continue to serve in parliament regardless of the results in the upcoming national election.

Rumors are circulating that Mr. Sunak, formerly employed at a hedge fund in California, might be considering a position in Silicon Valley amid challenges faced by the Conservative Party in gaining traction against Labour.

When questioned on ITV’s Loose Women about remaining a backbencher should his party be defeated, the Richmond (Yorks) MP responded, "Absolutely, I’m staying. I thoroughly enjoy my role as an MP. I have deep affection for my constituents and cherish my home in North Yorkshire."

Mr. Sunak secured his first parliamentary seat in 2015.

Several former leaders, such as Liz Truss and Theresa May, chose to remain in Parliament as backbench MPs following their resignation.

However, some have decided to step back from their political roles following their removal from leading positions.

David Cameron vacated his parliamentary position two months following his resignation due to the Brexit vote, citing his desire not to divert attention. Meanwhile, Boris Johnson abruptly abandoned his Uxbridge seat in response to a parliamentary inquiry's conclusions about whether he misled regarding partygate.

This marks the initial occasion on which Mr. Sunak has addressed his plans should the Conservatives fail to secure victory in the election.

After suffering significant losses in the recent local elections, he acknowledged that a defeat was possible, but continued to assert that a Labour sweep was "not a guaranteed conclusion" despite forecasts suggesting a major victory for Labour.

The prime minister avoided specifying when the election would occur, explaining to the Loose Women panel that his initiatives are beginning to have an impact, yet acknowledging that there is still progress to be made before he feels ready to call for a vote.

It mirrors the sentiments expressed by Lord David Cameron, who earlier this week conveyed to Sky News that the Tories require additional time "to demonstrate that their strategy is effective."

November is widely regarded as the probable month for the election, though it could be delayed until January 2025 at the latest.

The choice is ultimately up to Mr. Sunak, who has rejected calls to alter his political strategy following significant losses for the Tories in the local elections, where they lost almost 500 council seats, the West Midlands mayoral position, and the Blackpool South seat.

Mr. Sunak conveyed to the committee his strengthened resolve to demonstrate to the public the positive impacts of their actions on matters such as the economy and migration.

"I'm eager to return and engage in conversation with you during the election period. Right now, my attention is solely on that, on the decisions involved in this election," he stated.

"We've faced numerous challenges, but I truly believe our efforts are beginning to have an impact. We haven't fully achieved our goals, but we're making progress."
