Boris Johnson will remain the Prime Minister of the UK after he won a majority of parliamentary seats  in Thursday's general election.

 

Johnson and the  Conservative Party had won a majority 358 seatswhich amounts to the largest win for the Tories in decades while the opposition Labour Party and leader, Jeremy Corbyn, suffered their worst defeat in 40 years.

 

Meanwhile,Corbyn, in his reaction expressed his dissapointment with the results and says he will  not lead his party in any future general-election campaign following the loss.

 

"This is obviously a very disappointing night for the Labour Party," he said.

 

He however  intends to stay on as leader during a period of 'reflection'.
