Portugal congratulates new British Prime Minister Starmer

Lisbon, Jul 5 (Prensa Latina) The Prime Minister of Portugal, Luis Montenegro, today congratulated Labor politician Keir Starmer on his victory in the British elections and showed his willingness to strengthen ties between the two countries.

Starmer can count on our commitment to strengthen deep and dynamic ties, Montenegro wrote in a message on the X social network.

The prime minister also offered himself to ‘project into the future the most long-lasting alliance in the world’, with reference to the bilateral relations, which date back to 1373.

Starmer won his country’s general election at the head of the Labor Party with a historic result by winning 412 of the 650 seats in the lower house, according to the most recent provisional results.

Former Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s Conservative Party was reduced to 121 seats, the worst result in its history.
