Labour Party Expected To Form Govt In UK After 14 Years Of Conservative Rule | Pragativadi | Odisha News, Breaking News Odisha, Latest Odisha News – N.F Times

London: The Labour Party is expected to form the new government in the UK after 14 years of Conservative rule as the country goes to polls on Thursday.

Most poll predictions indicate that the Labour Party could secure over 400 seats. In 1997, former Prime Minister and Labour Party leader Tony Blair won 418 seats, ending 18 years of Conservative rule.

The UK operates under a first-past-the-post electoral system where voters elect representatives in 650 constituencies. To form the government in the UK, a party must secure at least 326 seats, and its leader will become the Prime Minister.

If no party achieves a majority, the incumbent Prime Minister will be given the first opportunity to form a coalition government. The major political parties on the country’s political landscape include the Labour Party, Conservative Party, Liberal Democrats, Reform UK, Scottish National Party (SNP), and the Green Party.
