In a historic political revolution, the opposition Labour Party has won the British election, ending 14 years of rule by the Conservative Party.

Labour leader Keir Starmer will become the next Prime Minister, replacing Rishi Sunak whose party suffered a loss.

The party’s victory was confirmed on Friday morning when it secured the 326 seats necessary for a parliamentary majority.

In an early morning speech by the new prime minister in Central London, Stamer declared: “We did it! You voted for it, and now it has arrived. Change begins now.”

While expressing gratitude to the electorate, he said: “You have changed Britain. A weight has been lifted, a burden finally removed from the shoulders of this great nation, and now we can look forward again.”

This election result marks a significant change in British politics.

The Labour Party’s win is seen as a clear mandate from voters for a new direction.

With this victory, Starmer and his party are set to implement their vision for Britain’s future.

Late Thursday, a reliable exit poll published found Labour on course to win 410 seats — just eight short of its highest-ever total.

The Conservatives were projected to win just 131 seats, which would be the worst result in its almost 200-year history.
