Joy came, but much less than expected!
The Labor Party won the most seats in local council elections in England, Wales and Scotland. They have snatched several seats at the Conservative base in London from Boris Johnson’s party. But the whole country did not produce the expected results.

Johnson’s Conservative Party has been gaining popularity for months. The main reason for this is the ‘Partigate’ scandal of the Prime Minister. Johnson, the leader of the Conservative Party, was severely criticized for breaking the Covid rules and holding several liquor parties at the Khas PM’s residence. In addition, the rise in prices over the past few months has made ordinary people more hostile towards the ruling party. Opposition parties have stated they will not run in the by-elections.
However, after the announcement of the results, it is seen that they did not do as well as the Labor Party had hoped. According to the results released on Friday evening, Labor and Liberal Democrats, the two parties combined, have increased their total number of seats by more than 400. The Conservative Party, on the other hand, lost about 400 seats. Other smaller parties, such as the Scottish National Party, the Green Party or the Welsh regional party PCO, have lost several seats this time around. Independent candidates also failed to produce good results. Those seats went to the Liberal Democrats. Outside of London, the Labor Party has not had much of an impact. However, they are not disappointed. In the words of Labor leader Kair Sturmer, “After that tragic outcome in 2019, it is a huge turning point for the party. Our team is on the right track now. ”
After losing more than 250 seats, will the Conservative party again demand the removal of Boris Johnson from the leadership? That is the question now being raised in the immediate vicinity of 10, Downing Street.
