UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, has stunned political pundits by leading his Conservative Party to score one of the country’s most dramatic electoral victories in decades.
The result is a vindication of Johnson’s strategy to campaign on a single promise to “get Brexit done.”
It was a crushing defeat for the opposition Labour Party, whose leader, Jeremy Corbyn, said he would step down after a “process of reflection.” And the leader of the pro-Remain Liberal Democrat party, Jo Swinson, lost her seat, as the Scottish National Party swept the board in Scotland.
By early Friday morning, the Conservatives had secured 363 of the 650 seats in the House of Parliament, well ahead of Labour’s 203 seats.
