Chancellor Rishi Sunak insisted he has no ambition to become prime minister, asserting that he is “struggling enough” in his current position.
Mr Sunak is often described as a potential successor to Boris Johnson if he resigns as the Tory leader in the near future.
At the end of September, an exclusive survey by Ipsos Mori showed that architect Eat Out to Help Out was beating the incumbent Prime Minister via a set of leadership qualities..
But asked if he had his sights set on number 10, the 40-year-old said in an interview with LadBible: “Absolutely not.”.
“I have enough suffering just to try to do the job that I own and keep my head above the water, quite frankly,” he told the site as part of the “5 Minutes With” series.
In response to the suggestions, he said he could be the first non-white national leader. He said: “Maybe it is worth taking into account, because I am not the first non-white advisor. Saj (Sajid Javid) had the job before me – he had that privilege.
“I think that says a lot about our country quite frankly,” he added. “This is an incredibly tolerant country where people like my family have been warmly welcomed, and the Saj family has been warmly welcomed and integrated into society..

This is the second time the chancellor has spilled water on suggestions that he might be the next highest ranked position in the UK.
When asked after his caucus speech last month if he ultimately wanted to move from No. 11 to the next house, Mr. Sunak laughed: “Oh my God, no.”. I certainly don’t see what the prime minister has to deal with.
Nevertheless, for anyone whose hopes have been dashed by Mr. Sonak’s allegations, it is worth remembering that Johnson has repeatedly ruled out getting the valuable political role before his election..
The incumbent prime minister insisted that he has a greater chance of “materializing in the form of olives” or “being decapitated by a flying disc” or “closed in an abandoned refrigerator” than the nation’s leadership.
But in June of last year, he launched his successful bid to succeed Theresa May as leader of the Conservative Party and was named Prime Minister..
