New UK Prime Minister and Labour Party leader Keir Starmer, Speaker of the House of Commons Lindsay Hoyle, and Members of the Parliament (MPs) were sworn in on Wednesday following last Friday's general election.

"I sincerely truly declare and affirm that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to his Majesty, King Charles, his heirs and successors according to law,” Starmer said.

Last week’s general election across the UK saw the opposition Labour Party win more than 400 seats - on 34 percent of the vote - giving it a huge majority in the 650-seat House of Commons. 

Outgoing PM Rishi Sunak's Conservatives were reduced to around 120 seats, as key government figures were voted out. Turnout was at 60 per cent.
