Jeremy Corbyn has been re-elected as the leader of the Labour Party.

He stays in charge of the second largest party in the UK Parliament, after he won almost 62% of the vote to beat rival Owen Smith.

Mr Corbyn became Labour leader in September 2015 but faced a challenge this year from many of his own Labour Members of Parliament.
They didn’t think he was doing a good enough job.

But 313,209 members of the Labour party disagreed with those MPs, and decided that Jeremy Corbyn should carry on as leader.
