The United Kingdom’s Labour Party achieved a decisive victory in the country’s general election, securing a majority in the House of Commons with over 326 seats.

Labour leader Keir Starmer, speaking at a dawn rally in London, emphasized the gravity of the mandate: “A mandate like this comes with a great responsibility.” As results continued to pour in, the BBC projected Labour to win 410 seats, leaving the Conservatives with 144.

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak conceded defeat and congratulated Starmer on his victory.
