British Prime Minister Boris Johnson achieved the required majority in the elections to steer his Brexit deal undisturbed through parliament. The party is now at 326 out of 650 seats in the British parliament. Because not all votes have yet been counted, the Conservative Party will reach an even higher number of seats.
Johnson’s goal has thus been achieved. The prime minister wanted early elections to get back the parliamentary majority that his party lost in 2017. He wants to use that to get his Brexit deal with the EU quickly approved by parliament. Then the brexit could take place at the end of January.
According to Johnson, with this result he has received a “powerful mandate” to implement the Brexit.
