On 7th May 2015, Britons will be renewing the 650 members of the House of Commons, the lower chamber of the British parliament.

Only one thing is certain about just one month before the election: the two "major" Parties - the Conservative and Labour – will retain their position as the country's two main Parties. However neither is due to win an absolute majority. Speculation is running high about possible coalitions: Conservative with Liberal Democrats and the Ulster Democratic Party (DUP), or Labour with the LibDems and the Social Democratic and Labour Party (SDLP), or the Green Party of England and Wales (G) or the Welsh party Plaid Cymru-Party (PC). The formation of the future governing majority is the real issue at stake in the upcoming elections in the UK.
