Worst election ever for the Conservatives in England – many ministers lose their seats in Parliament

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak called Labor leader Keir Starmer to congratulate him on his election victory. Sunak will resign as prime minister later on Friday.

The long-established Tory party has made its worst choice in the country's nearly 200-year history. In the first report, Prime Minister Rishi Sunak takes responsibility for the party's electoral defeat.

– There is a lot to think about and learn from this, Sunak said.

Sunak now goes to London to hand in his letter of resignation to King Charles.

Some conservatives also insisted that the election loss was not as big as some polls predicted. The Tories still lost almost 250 seats in Parliament.

Many senior Tory politicians are out of parliament

The Conservatives' disastrous election meant that many senior Tory politicians also lost their seats in Parliament.

Among them was Liz Truss, who was the country's prime minister two years ago.

Defense Minister Grant Shabbs, Education Minister Gillian Keegan and Justice Minister Alex Sack are also leaving Parliament. Chancellor of the Exchequer Jeremy Hunt narrowly retained his seat.

Benny Mordant, one of the new party leader candidates for the Tories, also lost his seat in Portsmouth.

Right-wing populist reform takes place in UK parliament for first time

On the other hand, for the right-wing populist party Reform UK, things went better. Party leader Nigel Farage has tried several times before to win a seat in Parliament.

On the other hand, Farage's Reform UK Party is new and Thursday's parliamentary election will be the party's first. Satisfied with the result, Farage says they are already aiming to give the Conservatives a fair fight at the next election.

Farage says Labor must not feel secure as winners.

“It's not a big win for Labour, more than half of the votes they got were anti-Tory votes,” Farage said.

Former Labor leader Jeremy Corbyn, who ran as an independent, retained his seat in parliament.
