The partial local elections in England ended with the “tie” between the ruling British Conservative Party and the largest opposition parliamentary force, the Workers’ Party.
The municipal elections held on Thursday had to decide on the mandate of all 32 representatives of the London district and 118 other Council regions in England – more than four thousand.
Final results, which have been finalized on Saturday morning, based on the modeling methodology applied by the BBC – the distribution ratios at the national level – show that both major parties received 35% voter support.
Measured in terms of absolute mandates, this is for the Workers’ Party 2350, and the Conservatives represent 1332 Council seats. Labor has increased the number of Council Members in England by 77, and has been the best municipal election result in London since 1971.
The Council of Representatives of the Conservative Party lost 33 seats.
However, these movements were minimal, however, with a large number of Council representatives’ mandates, so none of the two major British parties could reach a significant advance on the other hand.
The United Kingdom’s Independence Party (UKIP), Britain’s most flagrantly anti-EU political force, was largely loser in the local elections in England, with three seats in the local government, but lost 123. Since UKIP did not have any seats in the parliamentary elections in the United Kingdom last year, so the party virtually disappeared from the British political scene.
UKIP, the only political objective of which is the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union, was the best result of the British parties in the European Parliament elections in 2014, and it was very good at the then local elections in England.
However, according to Saturday’s expert analysis, the party has lost its appeal among the electors of the Brexit camp as the majority in the referendum on the British EU membership in the summer of 2016, and since then, the ruling Conservative Party represents the most powerful referendum election intent.
