On the heels of UK Prime Minister-elect Keir Starmer’s party victory in the British general elections, Pakistan has expressed its heartfelt congratulations and a strong desire to reinforce the bond between the two nations. Deputy Prime Minister Ishaq Dar conveyed his warm felicitations to Keir Starmer, acknowledging the historic triumph in the parliamentary election and expressing optimism about the future of bilateral relations.

Ishaq Dar emphasized the deeply entrenched and extensive connections between Pakistan and the UK, which are rooted in shared history and strong people-to-people interactions. He expressed his confidence that under Starmer’s leadership, the relationship between the two countries would continue to flourish, enabling collaborative efforts towards global peace, prosperity, and development.

The outcome of the UK general elections saw Starmer’s centre-left Labour Party securing a significant majority in the 650-seat parliament, marking a remarkable shift in British politics. The Conservative Party, led by Rishi Sunak, experienced a significant setback with a loss of approximately 250 lawmakers, including senior ministers and former Prime Minister Liz Truss. The election result reflects a substantial transformation in the political landscape, with Labour gaining over 210 seats, signifying a resurgence for the party that was grappling with an existential crisis just three years ago.

Following his victory, Starmer pledged to bring about significant change, emphasizing the mission of national renewal and the commencement of efforts to rebuild the country. Meanwhile, Rishi Sunak gracefully conceded defeat, acknowledging the need for introspection and assuming responsibility for the electoral loss.

In light of Starmer’s anticipated appointment as the UK Prime Minister, the future holds the promise of strengthened ties between Pakistan and the UK, as both nations look forward to a burgeoning partnership under new leadership.
