U.K. Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn “said he will not resign when he lost a symbolic vote of confidence among the opposition party’s lawmakers, ramping up the pressure on him to step down after Britain voted to leave the European Union,” the Wall Street Journal reports.
“The British Broadcasting Corp. said Mr. Corbyn lost the vote by a margin of 172 to 40.”
“Mr. Corbyn has faced criticism for his relatively lukewarm endorsement of the EU during the referendum campaign. More than two dozen of Mr. Corbyn’s top team have resigned in the last two days saying they have no confidence in his leadership.”Save to Favorites
