Boris Johnson, prime minister of the UK, will to return to office after his party, the Conservatives, won majority seats in the general election. 

According to the BBC, with just a handful of seats left to declare in the election, the party, also known as the Tory, will get a sweeping majority.

Johnson said the victory will give him a mandate to “get Brexit done” and take the UK out of the EU in January.

Jeremy Corbyn said Labour had a “very disappointing night” and he would not fight a future election.

The BBC predicts that the Tories will get 364 MPs, Labour 203, the SNP 48, the Lib Dems 12, Plaid Cymru four, the Greens one, and the Brexit Party none.

This, it said, means the Conservatives will have their biggest majority at Westminster since Margaret Thatcher’s 1987 election victory.

Labour, which has lost seats across the North, Midlands and Wales in places which backed Brexit in 2016, is facing its worst defeat since 1935.
