Boris Johnson now has the power to enforce his vision for leaving the European Union and reshaping the U.K. economy, following the biggest win for his Conservative Party since Margaret Thatcher 32 years ago.

With its large majority, his government will no longer give Members of Parliament a vote on extending the Brexit transition period which expires on Dec. 31, 2020, according to a U.K. official.
