Two seats were up for grabs on Thursday by the Conservative Party to replace local deputies. This result confirms the trend established in recent elections. Labor gains a constituency that was previously held by the Conservatives in the north of England, while the Liberal Democrats gain in the south due to the tactical 'antitory' vote.
Since the founding of the Labor Party in 1931 and the passage of universal suffrage, Wakefield has sent Labor MPs from Westminster to almost every election. He was the first conservative elected since 1931. After being imprisoned for having sex in public with a minor, Imran Ahmad Khan was elected as the chosen one.
Two towns in Devon are Tiverton, Honiton, and both are located in the south-west region of England. The two towns are part of a constituency with rural character, created in 1997 by the merging of two other ones. His vote was increased in the elections that followed, by a deputy who had resigned after being found in the House of Commons looking at pornography on his phone.
Accept your responsibilities. Oliver Dowden, President of the 'tory Formation', has resigned due to the defeat
Boris Johnson. "I don't pretend they are brilliant results. We have to move forward"
There has been a substantial Conservative vote in Wakefield for many years. The conservative candidate received 30% of the votes, which is 17% more than the one who was in prison. Amazing is the turnaround at Tiverton, Honiton. With 60.2% of votes, the resigned deputy won 2019. Now, the 'tory candidate' has received 28.4%.
While Ed Davey and Keir Starmer refuse to advocate tactical voting, it is clear that Labor and Liberal Democrat voters voted in recent elections for the party most likely to win the seat from the Conservatives. According to polls, this tactical vote could result in a coalition government of the two parties.
Oliver Dowden, the president of the Conservative Party with a seat within the Cabinet, has resigned following the defeat. Boris Johnson, his leader at the Commonwealth summit in Rwanda, wrote to Dowden, telling him that "we can't continue business as usual." He stresses that "someone must take responsibility" and that he has come to the conclusion in these circumstances that it is not right for him to stay in office.
The president is responsible for organizing electoral campaigns. However, Johnson's discredit is one of the reasons why the vote has dropped. Downden's message to the public will be taken as an indirect request for the resignation of Prime Minister. Fears among party members will rise that Johnson's persistent nature will result in them losing their jobs.
Liberal Democrat leader Ed Davey urged Conservative MPs "finally to do the right thing". All those who support Boris Johnson should be alarmed by this result. He said, "They cannot afford to ignore it." Starmer believes that the country has lost faith in the "tories" because the Conservative Party is "depleted of energy and new ideas".
