General Election 2015

Following the dissolution of Parliament on 30 March 2015, the UK voted for their next government on 7 May 2015. Voting took place in all 650 parliamentary constituencies of the United Kingdom, each electing one Member of Parliament to the House of Commons, the lower house of Parliament.

Out of everyone’s expectation, the Conservative took majority with 331 seats, Labour held 232 seats, Scottish National Party took 56 seats, Liberal Democrats with 8 and UK Independent Party only taking 1 seat.

Which means Mr David Cameron is, again, our new Prime Minister. But this time with a governing party consisting of only the Conservative party. No more coalition.

Another big surprise of this election was the big success of the Scottish National Party; of Scotland’s First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon. They won 56 out of the available 59 seats in Scotland. This unprecedented success meant Labour lost seats in what was once their safest territory.

The unexpected result triggered the subsequent resignation of Labour and Lib Dem’s leaders, Messrs Ed Miliband and Nick Clegg.

For now, we wait who will lead each government department as Mr Cameron reshuffles his cabinet prior to the return of Parliament on 18 May 2015.
