The three main UK political parties – the ruling Labour party, the opposition Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats – are now all on the campaign trail as Britain gears up for the general election on May 6th.
Britons are set to head to the polls on May 6, electing a Member of Parliament (MP) who will represent their constituency in the UK’s lower house, the House of Commons. After voting has finished, the party that has the majority of MPs goes on to form the government, which includes selecting the Prime Minister and forming a Cabinet. The UK local elections are set to take place on the same day.
