  • The voters will be able to cast their votes from 0700 hours to 1000 hours on polling day.

The government in the United Kingdom has been led by centre-right conservatives since 2010. The party has faced various problems recently, including high inflation, immigration, and healthcare issues. The Conservative Party is currently trailing behind the Labour Party in opinion polls. Some observers have also suggested that the Reform Party, formed by former Conservative party members, may siphon votes from the Conservatives. Parties like the Scottish National Party, Liberal Democrats, and the Democratic Unionist Party that have strong regional support are likely to be crucial in forming a coalition government in case an overall majority is not attained. Organizations are advised to remain updated on the situation and prepare necessary contingency plans.
