Jeremy Corbyn has been re-elected leader of the Labour Party.

He won 313,209 votes to Owen Smith's 193,229, securing 61.8% of the vote and improving on his margin of victory in 2015. He won majorities of the vote among full party members (59%), affiliate supporters (60%) and registered supporters (70%).

In his remarks following the announcement, Corbyn thanked Owen Smith for a campaign of "interesting discussions and good-humoured debates," voters for their "trust and support," and hailed both his and Owen Smith's campaign volunteers as "the lifeblood of democracy."

Describing the Labour Party as "a family," he called upon the party to "work together, and respect the democratic choice that's been made." He noted that the members of the party have "more in common than that divides them" and that it was time to "wipe the slate clean."

South West Bedfordshire Constituency Labour Party congratulates Jeremy Corbyn on his victory, and encourages our party colleagues across the country to put the contest behind us, reunite and return our focus to providing a strong opposition to the Conservative government.
