LONDON (Sputnik) — Labour leader Ed Miliband announced Friday he was stepping down after his party lost the 2015 general election in the United Kingdom.

"Britain needs a Labour party that can rebuild after this defeat so we can have a government that stands up for working people again. And now it's time for someone else to take forward the leadership of this party," Miliband said in his public address.

Labour's deputy leader Harriet Harman will serve as interim leader.
