Explanation

The Prime Minister was worried that he had lost the support of his party, so he needed to forcefully reverse his controversial statement. You’re looking for a word that means take back.

Both recanted and disavowed convey taking back a previous statement, and produce equivalent, appropriate sentences. Affirmed and validated are synonyms that mean declared true, which is the opposite of what you’re looking for. Overlooked and ignored are close in meaning, but they don’t make sense in the given context.

Hence options A and E are best fit!
