Jeremy Corbyn seeks to unify U.K.’s Labour Party after re-election as leader


Newly re-elected opposition Labour Party leader, Jeremy Corbyn, speaks during Labour’s women’s conference on the eve of the Labour Party annual conference, in Liverpool, on September 24, 2016.

LONDON—Veteran leftist Jeremy Corbyn on Saturday called for the U.K. Labour Party’s disaffected parliamentarians to rally behind him after he was re-elected leader of the opposition party by a solid margin.

Corbyn won almost 62% of the votes cast despite deep divisions in the party over his policies and leadership style, beating challenger Owen Smith, Labour announced at its annual fall conference in Liverpool. Corbyn was widely expected to win and attention has already shifted to whether he can bring together the party’s warring factions and boost Labour’s poll ratings.
