British Jewry congratulates Starmer on Labour election victory

British Jewish organizations thanked Rishi Sunak for the work he had done during his time at No.10 and congratulated Keir Starmer on his new role as prime minister

British Jewish leadership congratulated the Labour Party and Labour leader and new Prime Minister Keir Starmer on their Thursday parliamentary election victory, while also thanking and bidding farewell to former prime minister Rishi Sunak and his outgoing Conservative Party government.

Board of Deputies of British Jews president Phil Rosenberg issued a statement on Friday welcoming the Labour Party’s “historic election victory” with 412 seats in the House of Commons.

“The day is Labour’s, and we wish Keir Starmer and his new government every success,” said Rosenberg. “We look forward to working with Keir and his Cabinet, many of whose members will be longstanding communal allies and personal friends, to advance our common objectives and values. While there may be disagreements along the way, we will seek to resolve these through constructive engagement.”

The Jewish Leadership Council said in its Friday statement that it congratulated Starmer for his successful election campaign, and said that it was “looking forward to working with his government for the continued benefit of the UK Jewish community at this critical time.”
