The United Kingdom general election of 2015 was held on Thursday 7 May 2015 to elect members to the House of Commons. The election took place in 650 constituencies across the United Kingdom under the first-past-the-post system. The Conservative Party, led by David Cameron, claimed the majority and ended the collation government.

Background

Polling had consistantly shown the Tories trailing Labour. Many believed that the Conservatives and LibDems alike would be damaged for the unpopular collation Government.

Results

The world was shocked on election day when, in spite of dismal poll numbers, the Conservatives took the majority. Nick Clegg and the Liberal Democrats suffered a net loss of 48 seats, devestating their representation in the Commons. The Green Party of England and Wales retained its seat in the Commons.
