Background

The 2010 general election was the first held since Ulster and Mann joined the British Republic, this led to the expansion of the Legislative Assembly from 700 to 720 seats to represent the people of the new state. This also led to the Social Liberal Party forming the Liberal Alliance with the Alliance Party of Ulster, whilst the Conservative Party formed the Alliance of Conservatives and Unionists with the Ulster Unionist Party and the Democratic Unionist Party.

The general election was also the first since the outbreak of the financial crisis which had severely dented the popularity of the Social Liberal Party, which led many to predict a landslide victory for the Leftist Alliance under the new leadership of Jack Straw. The popularity of the Social Liberal Party was also dented by the ousting of Menzies Campbell in 2007 which made the party's new leader Chris Huhne the third Prime Minister since the 2005 general election, this helped to portray the Social Liberal as divided and disorgaised which reduced public confidence in the party.

The election was a resounding defeat for the Liberal Alliance who lost nearly two thirds of their seats and were only ahead of the Alliance of Conservatives and Unionists by 13 seats; it was a defeat from which the Alliance would never recover, with the Alliance losing almost half its remaining Assembly Members over the course of the next Parliament to defections and factions breaking away. On the other hand the Leftist Alliance won an overwhelming victory gaining over 100 seats and forming a coalition with the greens.
