Prime Minister before election
George Osborne (acting)
Elected Prime Minister
The United Kingdom general election of 2016 is expected to be held in Thursday, 16 June 2016, following David Cameron's resignation as Prime Minister, following his envolvement in the Panama Papers scandal. Until elections are held, George Osborne will act as Interim Prime Minister and Interim Leader of the Conservative Party. It will be also the first election to have Jeremy Corbyn and Tim Farron as Leaders of the Labour Party and Liberal Democrats, respectively.
In UK general elections, voting takes place in single member constituencies to elect Members of Parliament (MPs) to seats in the House of Commons, the lower house of the Parliament. There are 650 constituencies represented in the House, but it is likely that this number will be reduced to 600 for the next general election. The leader of the resultant government will become the Prime Minister.
