THE ELECTION RESULTS 2015

THE ELECTION RESULTS 2015 David Cameron will be returning to 10 Downing Street as the Conservatives have won the 2015 general election, securing the 326 seats needed for a slender overall majority.

Due to the election results and other parties failing to secure majority seats, some party leaders have spoken of resigning soon after the live election results.

Labour leader Ed Miliband has resigned, saying it is "time for someone else" to take over the leadership and that he is "truly sorry" he did not succeed.

Deputy leader Harriet Harman also said she would stand down once a new leader and deputy leader were elected.
Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg has also resigned after the party suffered heavy losses, including Business Secretary Vince Cable and Education Minister David Laws.

The SNP has ousted Scottish Labour leader Jim Murphy in a landslide general election victory in Scotland, winning 56 seats. Labour's Douglas Alexander, and Lib Dems Danny Alexander and Charles Kennedy also lost to the SNP.
Nigel Farage has resigned as UKIP leader after he failed in his bid to be elected in Thanet South.
