London [UK], Dec 13 (ANI): The Conservative Party has gained a marginal lead over Labour in the UK general elections, local media reported on Friday, citing poll officials, as the exit polls have shown a landslide victory for Boris Johnson's party.

A victory for Johnson and the Conservatives would mean that they will plough ahead with the Brexit, dashing all chances of a second referendum over the issue.

The exit poll had suggested the Conservatives would win 368 seats in the 650-seat parliament, with the main opposition Labour party trailing on 191, as per a report by the Washington Post.

The party needs 322 seats to control Parliament -- and push through Johnson's Brexit plan, The Washington Post reported.

This was Britain's third general election in a little more than four years, and the second since the June 2016 Brexit referendum. (ANI)
