The British Labor Party won the general election and took power with a majority of 326 seats in the House of Commons. Keir Starmer will become Britain's next prime minister after his center-left party won the general election, defeating Rishi Sunak's party and ending 14 years of chaotic Conservative government. After losing several ministers, Rishi Sunak took his seats and the extent of the Tories' defeat became clear. In his farewell speech he apologized to the nation and said he was "sorry" before leaving Downing Street to greet Charles III. to submit his resignation as Prime Minister. Britain's tax burden is set to reach its highest level since the Second World War, net debt is almost equal to annual economic output, living standards are falling and cuts to public services, particularly the popular National Health Service, are stupid.

The allegations and the battle for the top spot among Britain's Conservative MPs began long before Labor's crushing general election defeat on Thursday. Some insiders said the party has been out of power for ten years. After 14 years in government (the last eight years have been marked by turmoil and division following the Brexit vote), the Conservative Party now faces a debate among MPs, MPs and donors about whether it should move further to the right or return to the middle is approaching The party is facing an internal struggle. Rishi Sunak apologized to the public and announced on Friday that he was stepping down as leader of the Conservative Party following the Tories' landslide defeat by Labor in the British general election. The 44-year-old tycoon played six months before the trip in the hope that improving economic data would swing public support back towards the Tories. But Thursday's vote shows that Britons want to send a clear message to the party after 14 years of economic hardship, Brexit chaos and power struggles. “First and foremost, I would like to express my condolences to the country,” the Prime Minister said after walking to Buckingham Palace outside Downing Street to resign his post as Prime Minister.

"I did my best, but you have sent a clear signal that the British government must change and your judgment is all that matters." "Your anger and frustration have been heard." The defeat makes it inevitable that too Mr Sunak, the fifth leader of the Conservative Party since 2010, is stepping down as leader of the Conservative Party. But he said he plans to stay in office until the party prepares for a leadership election that is expected to be a battle for the party's ideological soul. Chung saw his senior ministerial team lose their seats, including Defense Secretary Grant Shubbs and House of Commons Leader Benny Mordant. His immediate predecessor, Prime Minister Liz Truss, also lost her job. Sun - a devout Hindu who became Britain's first black prime minister - wished his successor, Keir Starmer, "a decent, socially conscious person who I respect" the best of luck. "One of the great things about Britain is how striking it is that I can be prime minister two generations after my grandparents gradually arrived here," he added. “I saw my two little girls lighting Diwali candles on the steps of Downing Street. We must stay true to this self-image.”
