LONDON:  British opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn passed a key electoral test on Friday when his Labour party won in the first regional ballot since he took the helm in September.
The win bolsters the embattled leader of Britain's main opposition group amid mounting talk of a leadership challenge, and as the anti-European Union UK Independence Party (UKIP) targets voters in former Labour strongholds.
Labour candidate Jim McMahon won the ballot with a majority of 10,835, down from a majority of almost 15,000 enjoyed by the last lawmaker to hold the seat, Labour's Michael Meacher.    ?AFP
