İrem UZUN -TDO- Britain's prime minister, Boris Johnson, secured a crushing victory in the UK's general election as voters backed his promise to get Brexit done. After this sweeping election win, the Prime Minister said Britain would leave the European Union on January 31. "We will get Brexit done on time by the 31st of January, no ifs, no buts, no maybes," Johnson told cheering supporters on Friday.
Johnson's Conservatives captured 364 of the 650 seats in the House of Commons with all bar one seat counted, a comfortable majority of 74 and the party's best showing in a parliamentary election since Margaret Thatcher triumphed in 1987.
He addressed the nation just after 7am in London, saying Brexit was now the "irrefutable, irresistible, unarguable decision of the British people" and promising those who lent their vote to the Tories in traditional Labour areas: "I will not let you down."
