London: Council elections became a nightmare for British Prime Minister Rishi Sonak. In this year’s general election, the ruling Tory Party seemed certain to lose, only 281 councilors won. 735 councilors of the opposition Labor Party were successful—242 Liberal Democrats while 162 independent councilors won.

Elections were held for 107 local authorities including the Mayor of London, and the Mayoral Crime Commissioner, 3600 polling stations voted, and 12000 staff participated.

Prime Minister Rishi Singh has described the results of the local elections overnight as “disappointing” even though his party retained the mayoralty of Wadi Tis.

The Conservatives lost more than 270 council seats, while Labor won the Blackpool South by-election.

Labor leader Sir Keir Starmer said voters had shown Rishi Sonak they wanted change in the last major poll before the general election.

So far more than half of the 107 councils have been declared for elections.

Sir Keir said the Blackpoll result – a big swing of 26 percent to Labor – was a message to the Tory leader that it was time to go ahead and call a general election.

“It wasn’t just a little message, it wasn’t just a murmur, it was a shout from Blackpool – we want change,” he said.

“And Blackpool speaks for the whole country – saying we’ve had enough now.”
