Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron leaves 10 Downing Street in central London, March 18, 2015.

British Prime Minister David Cameron said he would not serve a third term even if his party kept winning the country's general election.

Cameron, who assumed office in 2010, told the BBC that he would serve another five-year term if re-elected, but that he would not seek a third time around.

The prime minister suggested to the BBC that his eventual successor could be U.K Home Secretary Theresa May, Chancellor George Osborne or London Mayor Boris Johnson.

BBC deputy political editor James Landale said Cameron's comments signaled to voters "that if they back the prime minister now, he would not go on and on as some previous prime ministers had done."
