KIGALI - British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Friday that the loss of two parliamentary seats overnight following elections was not a good result.

"Look, I'm not going to pretend these are brilliant results. We've got to listen, we've got to learn," Johnson told a news conference during a trip to the Rwandan capital of Kigali.

The losses - one in southwest England and another in a northern English industrial seat - have heaped pressure on Johnson, who earlier this month won a confidence vote among his lawmakers by a relatively modest margin.
