Former UK finance minister Javid to step down in next election


LONDON, Dec 2 (Reuters) – Britain’s former finance minister and Conservative Party leadership candidate Sajid Javid will not stand in the next national election, he said on Friday.

Javid is the ruling party’s most prominent lawmaker to date to say he will not run again, with a handful of other politicians saying they also plan to quit politics in the next election due in 2024.

Javid ran unsuccessfully for leader of the Conservative Party in 2019, when he was knocked out midway through the leadership race, and in 2022 when he stood down before the first round of voting.

“After careful consideration, I have decided that I will not be standing for re-election in the next general election,” he said on Twitter.

“Being MP for Bromsgrove remains an incredible privilege, and I will continue to support the government and the causes I believe in.”

Javid served as health minister under former Prime Minister Boris Johnson, before unexpectedly stepping down in a move that sparked a wave of others to quit and then caused Johnson himself to step down.

Javid had also served as Home Secretary. He was not given a ministerial role when Prime Minister Rishi Sunak appointed his government after taking power in October.

Reacting to Javid’s decision to step down, Sunak said he was “sad to see my good friend stepping down from politics.”

“He has been a proud champion of business and opportunity during his tenure in government and on the backbenches,” Sunak said on Twitter.
