An exit poll in the United Kingdom’s general election suggests it will be a landslide victory for the opposition Labour Party after nearly a decade and a half of Conservative rule.

The poll, released moments after polls closed on Thursday, indicated that Labour leader Keir Starmer will be the country’s next prime minister.

“Today, Britain’s future is on the ballot,” Starmer wrote in an X post prior to the election.

If Starmer wins the general election, it will be the Labour Party’s first win since 2005.

Labour pledged to get the UK’s sluggish economy growing, invest in infrastructure and make Britain a “clean energy superpower.”
