The Parliament of the United Kingdom has rejected the vote of no-confidence submitted by opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn, as The Telegraph reported.

325 lawmakers voted for the cabinet of Theresa May, while 306 lawmakers were against it.

It is noted that a lot of Labour representatives supported May, despite her traditional followers. Thus, Deputy Chairman of Labour Party stated before the voting that he joins the opposition to Corbyn.

“The United Kingdom is more divided and concerns about its future than ever before,” he noted.

John Woodcock, the ex-Labour Party member and now an opponent to party’s chairman noted that he does not want to keep May’s cabinet in power but he is “forced” to do it.

“With a heavy heart, I need to say to House of Commons that I cannot support the movement for the no-confidence today’s evening and some of my friends complain about shame. I have to say that a majority of them say “ thank God you have the freedom not to support it in fact” as they fight against their conscience, desiring desperately the Labour government, but knowing that the leader of their party does not really feet the governing of the country; if they voted for the no-confidence toward him, as it happened a few years ago during the internal party voting,” he said.
