The Conservative Party has won an overall majority in Britain’s  general election, passing the 326-seat threshold with constituencies still to declare and surpassing polling predictions.

As at the time of publishing this report, The Conservatives had won 351 seats, Labour had 202, The SNP had 46 and the Liberal Democrats had 10 seats. Forty-one seats are yet to be declared.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said it would give him a mandate to ‘get Brexit done’ and take the UK out of the EU next month.

Labour has lost seats across the North, Midlands and Wales in places which backed Brexit in 2016.

“I want to thank the people of this country for turning out to vote in a December election, which we didn’t want to call but which I think has turned out to be a historic election,” Johnson said.
He also said that the result gave his party a brand new mandate to get Brexit done.
This is the best result for the Conservatives since 1987, and the worst result for the Labour Party in forty years. Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn has said he would step down as leader of his party.
