London –The British Prime Minister Rishi Sunderak and 15 Cabinet ministers could lose their seats in an election “wipeout”, in 2024 according to a report by the media citing new polling data.
According to Focaldata polling, Best for Britain, James Cleverly (foreign secretary), Ben Wallace (defense secretary), Grant Shapps (business secretary), Penny Mordaunt (Commons leader) and Therese Coffey (environment secretary) could all lose their seats.
According to polls, only five Cabinet ministers Jeremy Hunt and Indian-origin Suella Brverman, Nadhim Zawawi, Kemi Badenoch, Michael Gove and Nadhim Zawawi – would continue their work after 2024 elections.
The Independent has shared a new analysis on the 10 key “bellwether” seats. These are those who have voted consistently for the winning party in recent years. It shows that Labour is well on track to win all 10.
Naomi Smith, chief executive at Best for Britain, said that Sunak’s Cabinet deserved nothing less than a complete wipeout. Best for Britain is a campaign group advocating for internationalist values as well as closer ties to the EU. Smith said that the Tories still have a chance to win the election due to the high percentage of uneasy voters. Best for Britain analysis has shown that Labour’s huge lead over the Tories may be less than originally thought, despite the dire polling for Sunak.
Sunak, 42 years old, is having trouble restoring Tory fortunes in 2023. Recent polls show that Labour has a lead of about 20 points. According to polling experts, there was a slight bounce in polls after Sunak replaced Liz Truss. However, the polls have now “flatlined”.
Sunak attempted to relaunch his premiership earlier this week by making five promises to turn the economy around, reduce the waiting list for the NHS and “stop small boats” by 2024.
However, the MRP poll results raise concerns about Sunak’s leadership in the lead up to his first electoral test at May’s local elections. Some Tory party members believe that a defeat could lead to a push for Boris Johnson, the former premier, to return.
To give members full control over the selection of candidates, a grassroots Tory group composed of Johnson’s friends is set to launch a campaign “Momentum-style”.
