British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak admitted that he the conservative party lost in the early parliamentary elections on July 4.

Party leader Keir Starmer has already made his first statement after victory: “We did it! You campaigned for it, you fought for it, you voted for it, and now it has happened. Change begins now. And that's nice.” I have to be honest. Four and a half years of work to change the party is what it is for: a changed Labor Party, ready to serve our country, ready to return Britain to the service of working people,” he said.

The official constituency count already confirms that Labor wins 328 seats in the House of Commons – more than the minimum majority of 326 seats.

Vote counting continues, but exit polls predict Labor will win 410 seats, one of the party's best results in history.

Now, according to formal procedure, Sunak will tender his resignation to the king, who will ask Starmer to form the next government.

5 July Starmer, after an audience with the British king, will become the new Prime Minister of Great Britain.
