Boris Johnson was tonight reselected as the Conservative candidate for Uxbridge and South Ruislip.
Many pollsters predict the seat will swing from the Tories to Labor at the next election.
In the last general election in 2019, Mr Johnson won 25,351 votes compared to 18,141 for the Labor candidate.
Mr Johnson led the UK through the Covid pandemic and was displaced by Liz Truss in 2022.
The local Conservative association in the constituency told Express.co.uk: “Tonight the Uxbridge & South Ruislip selection committee re-adopted Boris Johnson as our parliamentary candidate.
“We look forward to continuing to work alongside him to deliver for the residents and communities within the constituency, where he has strong connections and involvement.
“His commitment to deliver a new Hillingdon Hospital for Uxbridge & South Ruislip residents remains at the forefront of his work as our local MP.”
This comes following speculation that Mr. Johnson might seek out a safer seat, ahead of the next general election.
There has been speculation that the 58-year-old has had an eye on his old Henley constituency, after it was reported that he agreed a deal to purchase a Georgian manor house valued at £4m.
The property, the Guardian reports, contains its own moat and has been viewed by Mr Johnson and his wife Carrie.
A spokesperson for Johnson told the publication: “We never comment on matters such as living arrangements.”
This comes as the former PM agreed to face a televised questioning on whether he lied to MPs over partygate next Wednesday in a hearing that will determine his political future.
Mr Johnson is to appear before the cross-party Commons Privileges Committee at 2pm on March 22, it was announced on Tuesday.
He will need to convince the MPs that he did not knowingly mislead the House with his denials of lockdown-breaching parties being held in No 10 if he is to avoid censure.
In an interim report, the Privileges Committee said the evidence strongly suggests breaches of coronavirus rules would have been “obvious” to Mr Johnson during the partygate saga.
