David Moyes was elected as Labour leader, gaining a staggering 78.23% of the vote.

On 10 July 2016, The radical-left Labour MP David Moyes was elected as it leader in a dramatic landslide victory, Gaining a staggering 78.23% of the vote, the first of its kind in a century. Andy Burnham finished second, whilst Chi Onwurah and Owen Smith finishing third and fourth, respectively.
