Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Conservative Party is on course to win a significant majority in UK elections that would allow him to drive through his vision of Brexit, exit polls show.

The poll, released as polling stations closed at 10pm local time, showed Mr Johnson’s party winning 368 of the 650 parliamentary seats for the lower house of parliament. The result would give his party a majority of 86 seats.

The opposition Labour Party is predicted to win only 191 seats, a blow to its left-wing leader Jeremy Corbyn.

The vote – dubbed the Brexit election – was called by Mr Johnson after he failed to get his plan for leaving the European Union through parliament.

He campaigned on a slogan of “Get Brexit Done” which appears to have resonated with a public wearied by the slow progress of quitting the EU.

The predicted result would clear the way for Mr Johnson to take Britain out of the European Union by January 31. The opposition Labour Party had promised another referendum on Brexit during a campaign focused on nationalising key industries and taxing the ultra-rich.

The Conservatives have been leading the polls since Mr Johnson called the election in October, more than two years ahead of schedule.
