The United Kingdom general election of 2025 was held on 1 May 2025 to elect the 58th Parliament of the United Kingdom. Voting took place in all 600 parliamentary constituencies of the United Kingdom, each electing one Member of Parliament to the House of Commons, the dominant house of Parliament. Local elections took place in most of England on the same day, excluding Greater London. It was the third general election to be held at the end of a fixed term parliament following the enactment of the Fixed-term Parliaments Act 2011.
The Conservative government, which replaced scandalous Prime Minister Boris Johnson with his Chancellor, George Osborne, a year earlier in 2024, was returned with a reduced majority as Labour gained 13 seats after returning to the party's "New Labour" centre ideals from former Leader Jeremy Corbyn's left-wing ideals. The election cemented Labour leader Liz Kendall's status as party leader; she was responsible for the first general election that resulted in Labour gains since 1997, & later became the first Labour leader since Neil Kinnock in 1987 to not resign as Leader after losing a general election and go on to contest the next general election as party leader. The Liberal Democrats kept the seats they won 5 years earlier, staying at 4 seats.
This election led to the first election resulting in Labour gains since the party's 1997 landslide victory.
