Boris Johnson was re-elected as the Conservative candidate for Uxbridge and South Ruislip.
It comes on the heels of speculation that the former prime minister may seek a safer seat ahead of the next general election.
“We can confirm that Boris Johnson has been re-elected as the Conservative candidate for Uxbridge and South Ruislip,” a spokesperson said.
Johnson won 7,210 votes and a majority of 52.6% of the vote in 2019, but his seat is seen as a target for Labor in the upcoming elections. However, his allies have consistently rejected suggestions that he seek a new or safer seat, despite persistent speculation.
Since stepping down last September, Mr Johnson has pledged more than £1 million in speaking fees.
Since leaving Downing Street, he has also made a number of public interventions, criticizing a deal with the EU that agreed earlier this month that Rishi Snak would replace elements of the Northern Ireland Protocol.
The Uxbridge and South Ruislip Conservative Association said in a statement: “Tonight, the Uxbridge and South Ruislip Election Commission has selected Boris Johnson as its candidate for Parliament.
“We look forward to continuing to work with him to serve the residents and communities within his constituency where he has strong connections and commitments.
“His commitment to providing the residents of Uxbridge and South Ruislip with the new Hillingdon Hospital continues to be at the forefront of his work as a local Member of Parliament.”
