布蘭登-劉易斯說,約翰遜將在下次選舉中領導保守黨

補選的失敗也導致對約翰遜先生的批評增加,他在本月早些時候贏得了保守黨議員對其領導的信任投票,但有41%的人表示不希望他繼續任職。

但是,當被問及他是否願意繼續擔任第二個完整任期時,約翰遜先生說。"目前,我正在積極思考第三個任期,以及屆時可能發生的事情,但當我到了這個時候,我會重新審視。"

在盧旺達的基加利,這位總理在參加英聯邦政府首腦會議時對記者說,他被要求詳細說明他的評論,並回答說他正在考慮 "第三個任期--2030年代中期"。

"作為政治家,我們經常被批評,特別是當你在政府中的時候,被批評做決定時只看下周、下一次選舉、下一年,而不看長遠"

"他說:"我非常尊重邁克爾-霍華德,很遺憾,他在領導我們黨的時候沒能贏得選舉,我認為我們已經找到了一個有贏得選舉記錄的人,無論是作為倫敦市長,還是作為2019年的總理,他都有很好的記錄。

兩個反對黨都否認他們達成了任何形式的選舉協議,以相互支持,此前自由民主黨在蒂弗頓和霍尼頓因工黨選票崩潰而受益,而工黨在韋克菲爾德因自由民主黨選票下滑而獲勝。

"通常情況下,黨的領導人應該比黨本身更受歡迎,但我們在約翰遜身上看到的是他對票的巨大阻力。"


The by-election defeats have also led to increased criticism of Mr Johnson, who won a vote of confidence in his leadership among Tory MPs earlier this month, but with 41% saying they did not want him to continue.

But asked if he would like to serve a full second term in office, Mr Johnson said: "At the moment I'm thinking actively about the third term and what could happen then, but I will review that when I get to it."

Speaking to reporters in Kigali, Rwanda, where he has been at the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting, the prime minister was asked to elaborate on his comment, replying that he was thinking "about a third term - mid 2030s".

"We often as politicians, particularly when you're in government, get criticised for making decisions looking at the next week, the next election, the next year, and not looking long term"

"With all great respect to Michael Howard, who sadly wasn't able to win an election when he led our party, I think we have got somebody who has a proven record of winning elections, both as London mayor but also as prime minister in 2019," he said.

Both opposition parties denied they had made any form of election pact to lend support to each other, after Liberal Democrats benefitted from a collapse in the Labour vote in Tiverton and Honiton, and Labour won after the Liberal Democrat vote slumped in Wakefield.

"The leader of the party should normally be more popular than the party itself, but what we're seeing with Johnson is he's a huge drag on the ticket."
