Prensa Elections in the UK: Four Main Actors for a Crucial Election

The UK is to hold its general elections on May 7 and the uncertainty about who will be the final winner has become the most prominent feature in the weeks of the campaign. Actors destined to play but a marginal role on the British political scenario have gained prominence, such as the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) and the Scottish National Party (SNP). Both parties seek to decant the sign of the Government through a series of agreements towards which both the Conservative Party and the Labour Party have reacted with deliberate indifference.

/05.03.15/.- FAES foundation has published today an analysis by José Ruiz Vicioso, MA in the History of Political Thought by the University of Exeter, on the uncertain electoral scenario of the UK with conservatives and labours tied in the polls, and an underlying concern on the effectiveness of the system to produce stable majorities.

Prensa Electoral Prospects in the UK

Unless an unexpected change of trend occurs during the election campaign, it seems that, once again, neither conservatives nor Labour will have a sufficient majority in the next British Parliament. The two major parties are still tied in the polls (around 35% of the vote each) and neither of them has managed to stand out above the other in recent months. Typically, and given the characteristics of the British electoral system, the winning party should have a double-digit lead over the second in order to have the necessary majority.

Prensa Scotland: The Report of Lord Smith of Kelvin

A few days ago, Lord Smith of Kelvin presented the report which had been appointed to him after the historic referendum held on September 18 in Scotland. Just over 52% of the Scottish population voted against independence, but they did so after the commitment to increase the level of self-government of the Scottish Parliament was announced, assumed by the three main UK parties. The report of the Smith Commission aims to respond to that promise and is signed by the five main Scottish parties: nationalists, Labour, Conservative, Liberal Democrats and Greens. Its content should not sound too new to any Spanish reader and, in many respects, it stays far from the powers already assumed by our Autonomous Communities.

Once the referendum on Scottish independence has been held and the British political union has been saved, political parties in the UK have focused on preparing the upcoming general elections of May 2015. 

Prensa Elections and Lessons in Quebec

“Quebec is poorer and has less power within the Canadian context. The most tangible result of Quebec?s pro-independent movement has been the weakening of Quebec” “In Canada the right to decide does not exist; neither the right to secession, and certainly not the right to a unilateral secession” “Most Quebeckers do not want independence, they feel both Quebecker and Canadian and they do not want a third referendum” “The clarity policy has been effective and a new referendum in Quebec will take decades before it becomes feasible. Therefore, it is expected that the clarity policy will also be useful to inspire people who imitate PQ?s policies in other places”
