British Voters Kick Out Prime Minister Sunak, Go For Starmer Of Labour Party

British voters have voted out Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and voted in Keir Starmer, who heads the Labour Party.
Sky News confirmed today, July 5, that the Labour Party got 326 467 Parliament’s seats out of the 476 to send the PM out of the Downing Street.
Reports say that Prime Minister Sunak had since
conceded defeat before any media outlet declared that the threshold of 326 seats was reached.
The exit poll commissioned by three broadcaster, the BBC, ITV, and Sky News forecast earlier that the Labour would achieve a landslide win of 410 seats, while the number of seats for the Conservatives would be reduced to 131.
“The Labour Party has won this general election, and I’ve called Sir Keir Starmer to congratulate him on his victory,” Sunak said.
“The British people have delivered a sobering verdict tonight, there is much to learn… and I take responsibility for the loss,” he said.
Sunak is expected to announce his resignation soon to pave the way for Starmer to take over as Britain’s new prime minister after meeting Britain’s King Charles III.
“We did it. You campaigned for it, you fought for it and now it has arrived,” Starmer addressed crowds in central London after the Labour majority was confirmed.
“Change begins now.
“The British people had to look us in the eye and see that we can serve their interests and that doesn’t stop now,” he said.
“I don’t promise you it will be easy,” he added. “But even when the going gets tough and it will be remembered tonight and always what this is all about.’’
