UK Election: Conservative party led by the Prime Minister Boris Johnson won achieved the victory after fetching 364 seats in their bag, the opponent Labour Party led by Jeremy Corbyn scored 203 seats.

Thursday’s high-stakes ballot came after months of political deadlock over the UK’s drama-filled bid to quit the European Union, with MPs split over how to execute the result of the 2016 referendum on membership of the bloc.

A victory for Prime Minister Boris Johnson will end Britain’s 46-year involvement in the European Union (EU) next month, setting the country on a new future based on close ties with the United States and even China.

Earlier, YouGov analysts predicted that the Conservative party led by Johnson would secure a comfortable majority of 68 seats but on Tuesday expected the forecast to be reduced to 28 seats.

“The British pound surged across the board in reaction to the expected outcome from the UK election, which indicated a landslide victory for the incumbent Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Conservative Party”

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has seen off the challenge from 25-year-old Labour candidate Ali Milani and slightly increased his majority in his Uxbridge constituency. He paid tribute to his rivals, including Lord Buckethead, in his victory speech.

The leader of the Labour Party has kept his Islington North seat with a majority of around 26,000 – the tenth time he has been elected to this constituency.

According to the exit agreement, the country should remain in a transitional phase until the end of 2020. Until then, Johnson wants to negotiate a contract for future relations with the international community.

The time is, however, considered conceivable. An extension option of up to two years, which is possible until July 2020, has been ruled out by the prime minister. If no follow-up agreement is reached, a no-deal scenario threatens again at the end of next year.
