UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson claims 'powerful mandate' on Brexit Updated: 2019-12-13 17:01:03 KST

We begin tonight in the UK..
After securing a landslide win in Thursday's general election, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson gave a victory speech to thank his supporters.
Johnson said the election result gave the government a powerful mandate to get Brexit done to unite the country and focus on the priorities of the British people.
He also thanked all those who voted in what he described as an historic election.

And I, of course, want to congratulate absolutely everybody involved in securing the biggest Conservative majority since the 1980s. This election means that getting Brexit done is now the irrefutable, irresistible, unarguable decision of the British people. And, with this election, I think we put an end to all those miserable threats of a second referendum.

The new parliament is expected to approve Johnson's Brexit plan before Christmas, which would see the UK leaving the EU on January 31st.
