Jeremy Corbyn used his acceptance speech as an opportunity to offer an olive branch to his detractors, telling Owen Smith they were both "part of the same Labour family". He said he was "honoured" as he thanked those who voted for him for "trust and support". Owen Smith made no speech at the event; he later said he would support Corbyn since Corbyn won.

There were mixed reactions from those who opposed Corbyn. Labour MP Chuka Umunna acknowledged Jeremy Corbyn was labour's "candidate for prime minister". Hillary Benn, whose firing from the shadow cabinet triggered mass resignations within the ranks earlier on this year, tweeted it is "Time for unity" within the party. However, in a less conciliatory remark, Labour MP Louise Ellman said Corbyn "needs to change" in order to broaden his appeal beyond his "cheering fans".
