The UK's Chaotic Elections End In A Conservative Victory
The results of the U.K.'s Parliamentary election could prompt calls for electoral reform to give minority parties a bigger voice in government.By Jake Godin, Matt Picht | May 7, 2015
The results are in, and, to the surprise of many, the U.K.'s general election has produced a clear winner — David Cameron.
Of the country's two main parties, Cameron's incumbent Conservatives came out on top of the Labour party. By Friday morning it was clear they had received enough of the vote to secure an outright majority in Parliament, which means they won't need to form a coalition government.
But the key question from this election might not be what kind of government runs the U.K. for the next five years, but whether voters are getting their fair say. This election cycle has seen plenty of criticism of the way the country counts votes and appoints members of Parliament.
