The next United Kingdom general election will be the election to the 56th parliament of the United Kingdom.
The terms of the Fixed-term Parliaments Act 2011 mandate that the election will be held on 7 May 2015 (except in the event of a collapse of government or a two-thirds majority of MPs voting for an early election).
In the general election, voting will take place in all parliamentary constituencies of the United Kingdom to elect Members of Parliament (MPs) to seats in the House of Commons, the lower house of the Parliament.
When will the next General Election take place?
Following the Fixed-term Parliaments Act 2011 the date of the next general election has been set at the 7 May 2015. Below is the predicted timetable for the general election 2015.
The Electoral Registration and Administration Act 2013 has made provision for lengthening the UK Parliamentary election timetable, both for general and by-elections. These provisions have not yet been brought into force and until they are, the timetable for a General Election remains at 17 days.
When brought into force, Parliament will have to be dissolved 25 days rather than 17 days before the general election on 7 May 2015. Once the new timetable has been introduced, Parliament will be dissolved on Monday 30 March 2015.
