Yes. The entire House of Commons was being elected. Britain has a parliamentary system of government. Whatever party wins a majority of seats forms the next government (administration in US speak). The leader of that party become Prime Minister. Boris Johnson is on track for the biggest electoral landslide since the 1980’s. And Labour is facing what may be its worst defeat since before the war.

So there’s no head to head presidential election equivalent? wow
Another dumb question. Doesn’t that mean that the parliament and the Prime Minister will always be on the same page politically, or at least most of the time?
In other words, the Prime Minister will have a majority supporting him in parliament?
