UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has admitted defeat in the general elections as early trends indicate a decisive victory for Keir Starmer's Labour Party. Sunak's Conservative Party, trailing significantly with only 61 seats, faces a resounding loss against Labour's projected 300-plus seats.

"I am sorry. I take responsibility for the loss," Sunak expressed to his supporters gathered in Richmond and Northern Allerton.

Keir Starmer, poised to lead the nation, inherits a daunting set of challenges including a sluggish economy, strained public services, and declining living standards, issues that contributed significantly to the Conservatives' downfall, stated an NDTV report.

The impending landslide victory for Labour marks a seismic shift in British politics, signalling a significant realignment as Rishi Sunak's Conservative Party grapples with a substantial setback.

The outcome of this election sets the stage for a new era in British governance, with Keir Starmer preparing to address pressing national issues amidst expectations for substantial policy changes and reform.
