Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont says the victory of Britain's Labour Party and its leader Jeremy Corbyn in Parliament is a promising development for the world.

"I am delighted to see Labour do so well. All over the world people are rising up against austerity and massive levels of income and wealth inequality," Sanders, a liberal independent who unsuccessfully ran for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, wrote in an email to The Washington Post.

"People in the U.K., the U.S. and elsewhere want governments that represent all the people, not just the 1 percent. I congratulate Jeremy Corbyn for running a very positive and effective campaign."

The Telegraph reports that as Corbyn grew confident Britain's ruling Conservative Party had lost its parliamentary majority in the House of Commons, following a hotly-watched election, he told supporters on Friday:

"Politics has changed … Politics isn't going back into the box where it was before. What's happened is people have said they've had quite enough of austerity politics."

Before his rise to lead the Labour Party, Corbyn was national chair of the Stop the War Coalition and a member of the Socialist Campaign Group.
