Sarah Newton, re-elected as MP for Truro and Falmouth says she believes Theresa May will remain as Prime Minister.
She told BBC Radio Cornwall: "I think she should stay on. Negotiations with the European Union begin in 11 days time.
"What I'm going to to do when I get to Parliament next week, I hope all MPs do, is to reach out across the political divide.
"There's so much more that unites us than divides us, and really make sure that we've got a good agreement for the Prime Minister to negotiate the best possible Brexit that she can get with our European colleagues."
The Prime Minister is expected to give a speech at 10:00.

As Truro and St Austell, this seat has had a mixed parliamentary history during the past 60 years.
It was a Tory seat until 1974, when it fell to the Liberal candidate David Penhaligon. He held it until his death in a car accident in 1986.
He was succeeded by his 24-year-old researcher Matthew Taylor.
Taylor was re-elected for the fifth and final time, with a majority of 7,403, in 2005 before retiring in 2010.
The old seat also ceased to exist at the 2010 election. The other predecessor seat of Falmouth and Camborne was represented by Liberal Democrat Julia Goldsworthy until 2010.
The successor seat of Truro and Falmouth was won for the Conservatives by Sarah Newton with a majority of just 435.
A massive 24% collapse in the Lib Dem vote saw this increase to 14,000 in 2015.
The candidates are Jayne Kirkham (Labour), Sarah Newton (Conservative), Rob Nolan (Liberal Democrat), Duncan Odgers (UKIP), Amanda Pennington (Green Party).
The Liberal Democrat candidate for Truro and Falmouth, Rob Nolan, says it's "very disappointing" to see Nick Clegg lose his seat.

UKIP says it will only field one candidate in Cornwall in the general election - in Truro and Falmouth.
The party says it has "no wish to stand against the other five sitting MPs in Cornwall who are all pro Brexit and who we campaigned with during the referendum campaign and who support our views on the EU".
The UKIP candidate for Truro and Falmouth Duncan Odgers said it would be "silly for the party to risk losing Brexit orientated MPs to either the Liberal Democrats or possibly even Labour".
He will compete for the seat against Conservative Sarah Newton, Labour's Jane Kirkham, Rob Nolan for the Liberal Democrats and the Green Party's Amanda Pennington.
