UK’s Labour claims early win over Sunak’s Conservatives in local polls

The UK’s Labour Party has urged Prime Minister Rishi Sunak to call a general election following their victory in the Blackpool South parliamentary seat and gains in local elections. Labour leader Keir Starmer emphasized the significance of the win as a message for change. Labour’s victory in Blackpool South, with a significant swing, was triggered by a lobbying scandal leading to the resignation of the Conservative MP. Local elections across England, including council and mayoral contests, were held alongside polling. Early results indicate Labour making gains in council seats, with focus on key regional and London mayoral races. The Conservatives have seen a decrease in seats while Labour has gained. Other parties like the Liberal Democrats and Green Party are also making gains. The Tory party chairman described the results as “disappointing.”
