According to the BBC’s British public service media agency, the Tories have won 70 per cent of the Tory victory in the Dees Valley in the north of England, where Labor has traditionally voted so far. In Hartlbull, in the north, a Conservative was elected for the first time in fifty years: Jill Mortimer received almost twice as many votes as his Labor challenger.
Analysts point out that people living in the north of the country have been hard hit by the fall in workers, many of whom have supported the decision of the British EU (Brexit). “People still expect us to focus on them if we want to learn a lesson from this campaign,” Boris Johnson said in Hartlbull, where he personally congratulated Mortimer.
Johnson added that by voting now, the people have a say in the government’s epidemic management, and that the region has voted to leave the European Union (EU).
The turnout is expected to last until the weekend, but some analysts have already pointed out that preliminary results show the growth of the Conservatives across the country, which has caused a sharp blow to Labor and its leader, Keer Stormer, who faced part of his own party.
For Stormer, who is more moderate than his predecessor Jeremy Corbyn, the preliminary results may bring uncertainty: there are already those within the party who insist on a “change of direction”. The party leader described the results so far as disappointing and promised to do everything possible to regain the confidence of voters, although he did not mention possible staff changes in the party leadership.
The biggest role in the Scottish Parliamentary referendum was the result of the Scottish National Freedom Party (SNP) ruling here, as if the SNP could once again form a government with a large parliamentary majority, which would often be a major incentive to prepare for another referendum. .
The referendum on independence was already held in September 2014, but at that time 55 per cent of the participants voted not to separate Scotland from Britain. Final results are expected on Saturday, but Scottish Prime Minister Nicola Sturgeon has already issued a statement of confidence.
A significant portion of the series of elections known as election super Thursdays should have taken place at this time last year, but the British government postponed the election last March due to an outbreak of the crown virus.
In Scotland, seats were to be taken in the 129-member Edinburgh Parliament and in Wales in the 60-member Local Assembly. In the UK, voters in 143 council districts were able to cast their ballots for nearly 5,000 candidates, and voters were able to cast their ballots for 25 councilors and mayors in London City Hall.
