Corbyn, who has the crucial backing of labour unions and was elected last year in a landslide by ordinary Labour party members, was defeated by 172 to 40 in the non-binding vote of Labour lawmakers. “I was democratically elected leader of our party for a new kind of politics by 60 percent of Labour members and supporters, and I will not betray them by resigning,” he said in a statement.
