U.K. election results: Keir Starmer becomes prime minister after Labour’s historic win

1 week ago 45

LONDON — Keir Starmer became Britain’s prime minister on Friday, ushering in a new era after 14 years of Conservative rule, following a stunning victory that brought his left-leaning Labour Party to power with a huge majority. Starmer met King Charles III at Buckingham Palace and was invited to form a government. Speaking outside 10 Downing Street, Starmer said his would be a “government of service,” telling voters: “You have given us a clear mandate, and we will use that to deliver change.”

Labour is returning to power after 14 years in the opposition — and after Starmer led an effort to purge the hard-left elements of the party and sell voters on a “changed Labour.”

Rishi Sunak, the outgoing prime minister, accepted responsibility for the Conservative Party’s worst defeat. He will continue to serve as a lawmaker in the House of Commons, and for a short time as leader of the Conservative Party, until his successor is chosen.

Britain has elected its most diverse Parliament, and Starmer has appointed a diverse cabinet. Among the top officials is Rachel Reeves, who became Britain’s first female chancellor of the exchequer, or finance minister.
