United Kingdom’s (UK) new Prime Minister, Keir Starmer, has promised to “rebuild Britain” after being declared winner of the election on Friday July 5, 2024.

 Starmer won the landslide victory on the platform of Labour Party, and thereby ended the 16-year-leadership of the Conservative party.

Head of state King Charles III has already asked Starmer to form a government. He gave the order during a meeting at Buckingham Palace, officially appointing the 61-year-old former human rights lawyer as prime minister.

Flag-waving crowds of cheering Labour activists lined Downing Street as Starmer arrived as the party’s first prime minister since Gordon Brown in 2010.

“Now, our country has voted decisively for change, for national renewal and a return of politics to public service,” he said in his first speech in the role.

“The work of change begins immediately, but have no doubt, we will rebuild Britain.”
