UK Elections. And the Winner is…

UK 2010 ELECTION RESULTS


Party Seats Change Vote %
Conservative 306 +97 36.1
Labour 258 -91 29.0
Liberal Democrat 57 -5 23.0

No Party has been able to secure an outright majority in the House of Commons and there will now be a frantic period of negotiation to decide the shape of the next government. Nick Clegg is getting offers from both Labour and Conservative to form an alliance. Which one will it be?

With all election results declared, it emerges Britain has its first hung parliament since 1974. The Conservatives are the largest party, but will fall short of the 326 seats needed to form a majority government. Labour loses more than 80 seats, and the Liberal Democrats fail to make gains.Which party is in a position to form the next government will become clear in the following hours or days. So far, conservative party  leader David Cameron has made a “big, open and comprehensive” offer to Liberal Democrats.

Actually,there is no formal deadline for when an administration must be formed but a key date is 25 May, when the Queen’s Speech is due to set out the government’s priorities during the Parliament. Negotiations to form a government in a hung Parliament could take between a week and 10 days. Now, we can do nothing but wait till then!

    David Cameron is Britain’s new Prime Minister after a coalition with the Liberal Democrat’s leader Nick Clegg who becomes Deputy Prime Minister. It’s been the first coalition government in the U.K for 70 years. The Tories reach the power after 13 years and their leader Mr. Cameron becomes the youngest Prime Minister in 200 years, it’s absolutely amazing! On the other hand, it seems that Labour’s leader M. Brown leaves politics, ‘It has been my fault’, he has said.

    First of all, I can’t stand either politics or politicians, I guess they are always performing in order to lie to people on the whole, unfortunately, that’s what their work is like… After a disappointing election result by the Liberal Democrat party led by Nick Clegg (by the way, his wife is Spanish), it seems that they have the key to any deal. The conservative party, led by David Cameron, is looking forward to receiving the Liberal Democrat’s support in order to form the new government.
    Bye, bye.
