The result shows: Labor achieves majority

With 645 seats out of the 650 seats in the House of Commons, it was clear that Labor would get at least 411 seats.

With this, Labor is heading for a resounding victory and regaining power after 14 years in opposition.

According to the first poll, which is historically reliable, Labor looks set to win 410 of the 650 seats in the House of Commons, while the Tories will win just 131. This means Labor could gain an extra 209 seats over the 2019 election – and the Tories lose 241.

When the 645 seats in the Lok Sabha are apportioned, the apportionment will be like this;

  • Conservative Party, Tories: 119 seats
  • Labour: 411 seats
  • Liberal Democrats: 71 seats
  • Scottish Nationalist Party: 9 seats
  • Reform UK: 4 seats
  • Plate Cymru: 4 seats
  • Green Party: 4 seats
