Did the Brexit party win any seats

Answered By: Howard Parker Date: created: Oct 14 2023

General election, 2019 – Constituencies which the Brexit Party contested at the election. In April 2019, party leader Nigel Farage said the Brexit Party intended to stand candidates at the next general election. The same month, he promised not to stand candidates against the 28 Eurosceptic Conservative MPs who opposed the Brexit withdrawal agreement in Parliament.

  1. When a general election was held in December 2019, the Brexit Party stood in around half of the total seats in England, Scotland and Wales, campaigning most strongly in the red wall (seats long held by Labour Members of Parliament ).
  2. The party did not stand in seats won by the Conservative Party in 2017 along with a number of exceptional seats; mainly in London, Scotland and the North East.

A number of candidates who had been selected to stand in Conservative constituencies went on to run in the election as independent candidates on a Pro-Brexit platform. As largely expected, the Brexit Party failed to win any seats in the general election.

How many seats are needed for a majority government in India

Answered By: Abraham White Date: created: Nov 19 2023

For a political party to form the government, they must have a majority of elected MPs. Since there are 543 elected (plus 2 Anglo-Indian nominated) members in Lok Sabha, to have a majority a party should have at least half the number i.e.272 members or more.

The electorate of 46.5m represents 70.8% of the population.

On 23 June 2016, a referendum, commonly referred to as the EU referendum or the Brexit referendum, took place in the United Kingdom (UK) and Gibraltar to ask the electorate whether the country should remain a member of, or leave, the European Union (EU).

  • It was organised and facilitated through the European Union Referendum Act 2015 and the Political Parties, Elections and Referendums Act 2000,
  • The referendum resulted in 51.9% of the votes cast being in favour of leaving the EU.
  • Although the referendum was legally non-binding, the government of the time promised to implement the result.

Membership of the EU had long been a topic of debate in the United Kingdom. The country joined the European Communities (EC), principally the European Economic Community (EEC) or Common Market, the forerunner to the European Union, in 1973, along with the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC), and the European Atomic Energy Community (EAEC or Euratom).

  • A referendum on continued membership of the Communities was held in 1975, with 67.2% of the votes cast in favour of Britain remaining a member.
  • In May 2015, following a Conservative Party manifesto pledge, the legal basis for the EU referendum was established through the European Union Referendum Act 2015,

Britain Stronger in Europe became the official group campaigning for the UK to remain in the EU, and was endorsed by the Prime Minister David Cameron and Chancellor George Osborne, Vote Leave was the official group campaigning for the UK to leave the EU, and was fronted by Conservative MPs Boris Johnson and Michael Gove along with Labour MP Gisela Stuart,

Other campaign groups, political parties, businesses, trade unions, newspapers and prominent individuals were also involved, with both sides having supporters from across the political spectrum, Parties in favour of ‘remain’ included Labour, the Liberal Democrats, the Scottish National Party (SNP), Plaid Cymru and the Green Party ; while the UK Independence Party (UKIP) campaigned in favour of leaving the European Union; and the Conservative Party remained neutral.

In spite of the official positions of the Conservative Party and Labour, both parties allowed their MPs to publicly campaign for either side of the issue. Immediately after the result, financial markets reacted negatively worldwide, and Cameron announced that he would resign as Prime Minister and Leader of the Conservative Party, having campaigned unsuccessfully to remain in the European Union.

Why did Labour lose in 2019?

3. Jeremy Corbyn was deeply unpopular – The report is unflinching in its analysis of how the leader’s appeal to voters plummeted between 2017 and 2019. Had his popularity stayed at its peak level, it says, Labour’s vote share in 2019 would have been 6 percentage points higher.

  • By September 2019, it finds, 67% of voters disliked Corbyn, most strongly, and only 12% liked him.
  • It links this to issues including Corbyn’s handling of complaints of antisemitism in the party, Labour’s Brexit position, and a perception of disunity due to events such as the defection of MPs to the short-lived Independent Group.

The report says research suggests an “intense” dislike of Corbyn was a key factor among voters who switched from Labour to the Tories; they raised issues such as antisemitism, perceived support for terrorism, and unaffordable policies. The views of one 52-year-old woman who voted Labour in 2017 are summarised in the report as: “Frightened at the possibility of a Marxist government.

Where is the world’s largest electorate?

Geography – Since 1984, federal electoral division boundaries in Australia have been determined at redistributions by a redistribution committee appointed by the Australian Electoral Commission, Redistributions occur for the boundaries of divisions in a particular state, and they occur every seven years, or sooner if a state’s representation entitlement changes or when divisions of a state are malapportioned.

In August 2021, the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) announced that Durack’s Wheatbelt Shires of Bruce Rock, Cunderdin, Kellerberrin, Koorda, Kulin, Merredin, Mount Marshall, Mukinbudin, Narembeen, Nungarin, Quairading, Tammin, Trayning, Westonia, Wyalkatchem and Yilgarn and Durack’s Mid West Shire of Wiluna would be transferred to the seat of O’Connor, while the Wheatbelt Shires of Chittering, Gingin, Northam, Toodyay and York would be transferred to Durack from the seat of Pearce,

These boundary changes took effect with the next federal election, Durack presently includes the Kimberley region ( Broome, Derby-West Kimberley, Halls Creek, and Wyndham-East Kimberley ), the Pilbara region ( Ashburton, East Pilbara, Karratha, and Port Hedland ), the Gascoyne region ( Carnarvon, Exmouth, Shark Bay and Upper Gascoyne ), most of the Mid West region ( Carnamah, Chapman Valley, Coorow, Cue, Geraldton, Irwin, Meekatharra, Mingenew, Morawa, Mount Magnet, Murchison, Northampton, Perenjori, Sandstone, Three Springs, and Yalgoo ), and northern and central parts of the Wheatbelt ( Chittering, Dandaragan, Dowerin, Gingin, Goomalling, Moora, Northam, Toodyay, Victoria Plains, Wongan-Ballidu, and York ).

A small portion of Perth ‘s metropolitan area also falls in the electorate with the town of Bullsbrook, part of the City of Swan, marking part of the southern boundary. At 1,383,954 km 2 (over 54 per cent of the landmass of Western Australia ), Durack is the largest electorate in Australia by land area, the largest constituency in the world that practices compulsory voting, and the fourth largest single-member electorate in the world after Yakutsk in Russia, Nunavut in Canada, and Alaska in the United States.

It is also larger than all Australian states and territories except for Western Australia itself, Queensland and the Northern Territory.

The 2023 Trinidadian local elections were held on Monday, August 14, 2023, across all 141 electoral districts in Trinidad’s 14 municipal corporation electoral areas, The elections follow a 3-2 ruling on May 18, 2023, from the United Kingdom ‘s Judicial Committee of the Privy Council, the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago ‘s highest court of appeal, which stated that the government’s one-year extension of the mandate of councillors and alderman was unlawful.

The election also comes two years after the PNM ‘s landslide loss in the December 2021 Tobago House of Assembly election, where the party was wiped out of office in the Tobago House of Assembly after two decades in power. Polls pointed to widespread rejection among the population for both the governing People’s National Movement and the opposition United National Congress with both major parties and their leaders, Prime Minister Keith Rowley and Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar being “extremely unpopular with unprecedented low approval ratings.” The Elections And Boundaries Commission (EBC) is yet to produce a map of the boundaries of all 141 electoral districts in Trinidad.

With the exception of those areas that have had boundary changes, the seats up for election were last contested in the 2019 local elections, The number of electoral districts has increased from 139 to 141 with the creation of two new seats, Couva West/Roystonia in the Couva–Tabaquite–Talparo Regional Corporation and Mayaro North in the Mayaro–Rio Claro Regional Corporation and also 22 boundary changes in six other corporations: Chaguanas, Point Fortin, Couva–Tabaquite–Talparo, Penal–Debe, Siparia and Mayaro–Rio Claro.

  1. It i the first election since the establishment of regional corporations— Diego Martin and Siparia—as boroughs.
  2. Since 1946, when the office of the mayor of the Port of Spain City Corporation was created, only men have officially served as mayor of the country’s capital, despite voters in the last local elections electing a female majority city corporation slate in a historic first and the outcry from women’s activists on the lack of gender equality with political parties in terms of a low number of nominations by parties of prospective female councillors and female aldermen,

In 2019, both parties won control of seven of the fourteen corporations with the People’s National Movement (PNM) losing their minority control status in the Sangre Grande Regional Corporation. The PNM won 72 of the then 139 electoral districts, but lost the popular vote and 11 electoral districts: Sangre Grande North West in the Sangre Grande regional corporation, Lengua/Indian Walk in the Princes Town Regional Corporation, Siparia West/Fyzabad in the Siparia Regional Corporation, Cocal/Mafeking in the Mayaro–Rio Claro Regional Corporation, Enterprise South/Longdenville North in the Chaguanas Borough Corporation, Caura/Paradise/Tacarigua in the Tunapuna–Piarco Regional Corporation, Les Effort West/La Romaine, Marabella West and Marabella West/Vistabella in the San Fernando City Corporation while gaining two from the United National Congress, in the San Juan–Laventille Regional Corporation, San Juan East and Barataria.

Who won the 2017 general election

Answered By: John Baker Date: created: Jan 17 2023

The 2017 General Election – the numbers behind the result – London Datastore It feels like groundhog day as Britain went to the polls and produced a result that few saw coming. Read below for some analysis of what happened and a link to download the results in full.

  • The 2017 General Election has resulted in a hung parliament, with no party able to win a majority of the 650 seats in the House of Commons.
  • The Conservatives, widely tipped for a landslide victory at the beginning of the campaign, won 318 seats – down 13 seats from the previous election and 8 short of the 326 needed for a majority.

Meanwhile Labour, who were initially expected to lose seats, won 30 more than the 2015 election bringing them up to 262 seats. This was however still 64 seats short of a majority. Figure 1: Interactive maps and charts showing the 2017 General Election results Despite a drop in the number of seats, the Conservatives actually saw a rise in vote share (up 5.5% points to 42.4%).

  1. Labour’s vote share rose at an even greater rate (up 9.5% points) and now sits at 40.0%.
  2. Many of the smaller parties did not fare as well when compared to the previous election.
  3. SNP lost 21 seats and almost halved their vote share while UKIP’s national vote share dropped from 12.6% to 1.8%, failing to win any seats in the process.

The Liberal Democrats gained 4 additional seats despite their vote share dropping by 0.5% points. Overall the percent of people who voted for a party other than Conservative or Labour almost halved from 32.8% in 2015 to 16.5% two years later. Figure 2: Vote share in the United Kingdom by year In London, Labour’s improvement was even more marked winning 4 additional seats including safe Tory seats in Kensington and Battersea. In fact over half (55.6%) of Londoners voted for Labour, up 10.9% points from 2015. The Liberal Democrats also performed better this time around, winning back two of the seats that they had lost in 2015.

Party Seats (+/-) Vote share (+/-)
Labour 49 +4 54.5% +10.8
Conservative 21 -6 33.1% -1.7
Liberal Democrats 3 +2 8.8% +1.1
Green Party 0 0 1.8% -3.1
UKIP 0 0 1.3% -6.8
Other 0 0 0.5% -0.2

Labour gained vote share in 71 of London’s 73 constituencies, losing vote share in only two. These figures are especially impressive when compared to the other major parties: the Liberal Democrats gained vote share in 39 London constituencies, losing share in 34; meanwhile the Conservatives gained vote share in 24, losing in 49.

UKIP and the Green Party both lost vote share in every seat that they ran for. Labour’s improvement was replicated across the country, gaining vote share in 97% of the constituencies they ran in (the same as the percentage for London). The Conservatives performed better outside of London, gaining vote share in 84% of all constituencies that they ran in compared to 33% in London.

In contrast, the Liberal Democrats performed better in London gaining vote share in 53% of constituencies vs 34% nationally. Figure 4: Percent of constituencies in which vote share was gained by party Traditionally, the two larger parties have won a higher share of seats when compared to the percent of the population who have actually voted for them.

This year the Conservatives won 48.9% of the seats with 42.4% of the popular vote, giving them a seats to vote ratio of 1.2. Labour, however, won 40.2% of the seats with 40.0% of votes meaning their seats to vote ratio was 1.0. These ratio are in stark contrast to 12 years ago when Labour’s seat to vote ratio was 1.6 (winning 55.0% of seats with just 35.2% of the popular vote) and the Tories’ ratio was 0.9 (winning 30.7% of seats with 32.4% of the vote).

The vote share for other parties rose in this election, however this is driven by a fall in votes rather than a rise in seats. Figure 5: Votes to seats ratio in the United Kingdom, 1992-2017 The election was fought on many issues but, with the referendum on the UK’s membership of the European Union less than 12 months ago, one area that dominated the debate was the country’s approach to Brexit negotiations. This debate has divided the political spectrum in a different way to the usual left/right split.

Indeed, over half of both the highest Remain and Leave voting areas were Labour constituencies showing splits within the party voter base. Comparing what proportion of each constituency voted to leave the EU with party vote share doesn’t produce any particularly strong correlations (probably due to the multi-issue nature of a general election and Brexit itself) however comparing the correlation coefficients of each party may point to where they sit on the Brexit spectrum of Remain/”Soft Brexit”/”Hard Brexit” (or at least where the public perceive that each party sits).

UKIP vote share shows the strongest positive correlation with Leave vote share (CC=0.48) followed by the Conservatives (CC=0.37). The Liberal Democrats show the strongest negative correlation (CC=-0.30) with the Green Party (CC=-0.22) and Labour (CC=-0.19) also with negative correlations.

Why Brexit won

Answered By: Gabriel Taylor Date: created: Jul 20 2023

The result in favour of Brexit of the 2016 United Kingdom European Union membership referendum is one of the most significant political events for Britain during the 21st century. The debate provoked major consideration to an array of topics, argued up-to, and beyond, the referendum on 23 June 2016.

The referendum was originally conceived by David Cameron as a means to defeat the anti-EU faction within his own party by having it fail, but he misjudged the level of public support for leaving, particularly amongst Labour Party voters. Factors included sovereignty, immigration, the economy and anti-establishment politics, amongst various other influences.

The result of the referendum was that 51.8% of the votes were in favour of leaving the European Union, The formal withdrawal from the EU took place at 23:00 on 31 January 2020, almost three years after Theresa May triggered Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty on 29 March 2017.

Which politician pushed for Brexit?

History – Boris Johnson MP was a key figurehead for the Vote Leave campaign The Vote Leave campaign was launched on 8 October 2015 with support from MPs including Labour MP Kate Hoey and UKIP MP Douglas Carswell, and supporters from the business world including CMC Markets founder Peter Cruddas, entrepreneur Luke Johnson and businessman John Mills, the Labour Party ‘s biggest individual donor.

Matthew Elliott, founder and former chief executive of the TaxPayers’ Alliance and Big Brother Watch as well as the campaign director of the successful NOtoAV campaign in 2011 was announced as the chief executive of Vote Leave. On 2 November 2015, Vote Leave called on the British Polling Council to investigate “serious violations” of the Council’s rules by polling organisation YouGov in a survey conducted in 2013 for the Confederation of British Industry (CBI).

The poll appeared to show that 8 out of 10 businesses backed Britain’s continued membership of the EU. Vote Leave claimed that the poll was “wholly unrepresentative” of Britain’s businesses due to skewed sampling in the poll and alleged that the research had “caused the public to be misled about the views of British businesses on the EU for nearly two years.” The British Polling Council ‘s formal response concluded that YouGov had “not provided an adequate explanation of the sampling procedures that had been used to conduct the survey” at the time of publishing the survey.

Let’s spend it on our NHS instead.” Vote Leave campaign material On 3 February 2016, Vote Leave announced that former Conservative Chancellor of the Exchequer Lord Lawson would be taking over as interim chairman of the Vote Leave board. Lord Forsyth, the former Secretary of State for Scotland, was also appointed to the board at this time.

On 20 February 2016, following David Cameron’s announcement that the EU referendum would take place on 23 June 2016, five Cabinet ministers publicly declared their support for Vote Leave: Michael Gove, the Lord Chancellor and Justice Secretary, Chris Grayling, Leader of the House of Commons, Iain Duncan Smith, the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, John Whittingdale, the Culture Secretary, Theresa Villiers, the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, as well cabinet-attending minister Priti Patel, the Minister of State for Employment.

This was followed by an announcement on 21 February by the then- Mayor of London, Boris Johnson MP, that he would also be backing the Vote Leave campaign. Boris Johnson subsequently became one of the key figureheads for Vote Leave throughout the referendum campaign.

What is the difference between absolute majority and simple majority

Answered By: Seth Adams Date: created: Dec 20 2023

In Parliament, which votes require a simple majority and which votes require an absolute majority? – Parliamentary Education Office The Senate and the House of Representatives make decisions by voting. Most ideas – motions – are agreed to by a simple majority.

A simple majority is when a majority of those who are present agree to the idea. Some ideas need to be agreed to by an absolute majority. An absolute majority is when more than half of the total membership of the Senate or House agree to the idea. In the Senate there are 76 senators, so an absolute majority is at least 39 senators (half of 76 plus one equals 39).

In the House of Representatives there are 151 members, which makes an absolute majority at least 76 members (half of 150 plus one equals 76). Here are some examples of when an absolute majority is required:

if a motion to suspend standing orders without notice or without leave is proposed. Standing orders are the rules used to manage the work of the Senate and the House of Representatives, but sometimes suspending particular standing orders can allow a certain action or actions to be taken that would not usually be permitted. if the Senate wants to rescind – undo – an order or decision of the Senate if the Senate or the House of Representatives is voting on the third reading of a bill to alter the constitution.

What is the difference between a qualified majority and a simple majority?

The difference between a simple majority and a qualified majority is that in the former, it is that which is the majority of the members present, there being a quorum. On the other hand, a qualified majority is one wherein the total membership of the sanggunian is considered in determining a majority¹.

How many members are needed to be considered a majority?

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia This article is about the mathematical concept of majority and its applications. For other uses, see Majority (disambiguation), Look up majority in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. A majority, also called a simple majority or absolute majority to distinguish it from related terms, is more than half of the total. It is a subset of a set consisting of more than half of the set’s elements.

For example, if a group consists of 30 individuals, a majority would be 16 or more individuals, while having 15 or fewer individuals would not constitute a majority. “Majority” can be used to specify the voting requirement, as in a “majority vote”, which means more than half of the votes cast. A majority can be compared to a plurality (sometimes called relative majority ), which is a subset larger than any other subset but not necessarily larger than all other subsets combined, and not necessarily greater than half of the set.

For example, if there is a group with 20 members which is divided into subgroups with 9, 6, and 5 members, then the 9-member group would be the plurality. A plurality is not necessarily a majority as the largest subset considered may consist of less than half the set’s elements.

  1. This can occur when there are three or more possible choices.
  2. The (absolute) majority is sometimes referred to as a “simple” majority, compared to a supermajority (a majority requirement above 50%, like a 2/3 requirement), however use of this term is inconsistent as it sometimes refers to a mere plurality (as opposed to an absolute majority).

In British English the term “majority” is also alternatively used to refer to the winning margin, i.e., the number of votes separating the first-place finisher from the second-place finisher. Other related terms containing the word “majority” have their own meanings, which may sometimes be inconsistent in usage.
