UK elections: Labour on course for landslide victory

Keir Starmer pledged Friday to start a period of "national renewal" in the UK after his opposition Labour party crossing the 326-seat threshold for a working majority in the House of Commons, defeating the ruling Conservatives in the general election. 

Britain's main opposition Labour party looks set for a landslide election win, exit polls have indicated, with Keir Starmer replacing Rishi Sunak as prime minister, ending 14 years of Conservative rule.

As polling stations closed at 10:00pm, the survey for UK broadcasters suggested centre-left Labour would win 410 seats in the 650-seat House of Commons, with the right-wing Tories managing 131.


  1. The 4th July 2024 general election in Britain is historic. The polls delivered a historic victory for Keir Starmer's Labor and a historic rout for Rishi Sunak's Tories. At the same time, they gave - after 7 failed attempts - the ticket for Parliament to the leader of the far-right party UK Reform and one of the pioneers of Brexit, Nigel Farage. And they were marked by historic participation.

  2. According to the updated forecast broadcast by the BBC, Labor will secure a total of 410 of the 650 seats in the House of Commons. The Conservative Party 144 seats, the Lib Dems 58, the Scottish National Party 8, Reform UK 4 seats and the other parties 26.

  3. UK Prime Minister and the leader of the ruling Conservative Party Rishi Sunak congratulated Labour leader Keir Starmer on winning the July 4 parliamentary election.

    He said he had made a phone call to Starmer to congratulate him.

    Also, Sunak took responsibility for his party’s defeat.
