Updated:1 month ago IST

New Delhi, Jan 17 (ANI): Embattled British Prime Minister Theresa May on January 16 narrowly sailed through a no-confidence vote put forth by the opposition Labour Party, a day after her government suffered a historic defeat in the Brexit deal vote. May’s ruling Conservative Party won the confidence motion by 325 votes to 306. A total of 631 MPs had participated in the voting process at the House of Commons, CNN reported. The no-confidence motion was tabled by Labour Party leader and Leader of Opposition in the UK Parliament Jeremy Corbyn. May's victory in the no-trust vote means that she would remain the British Prime Minister. But uncertainty still looms about the next steps to be taken, after her Brexit deal was voted down. Following the vote, May remained defiant about her Brexit deal, stating that her government would continue to work to ensure that the United Kingdom leaves the European Union, as part of the agreement.
