About our 2024 UK General Election (GE2024) news

Latest news on the 2024 UK general election, providing comprehensive coverage of campaigns, polls, key issues, party manifestos, and results as Britain prepares to choose its next government on 4 July.

The 2024 United Kingdom general election, scheduled for Thursday, 4 July 2024, will determine the composition of the House of Commons and ultimately decide the next UK government. With significant boundary changes in effect for the first time since 2010 and the introduction of voter ID requirements in Great Britain, this election is set to be a pivotal moment for the nation.

As the campaign kicks off, key issues like the economy, immigration, healthcare, and Brexit are expected to dominate the debate. Recent polls suggest a close race between Prime Minister Rishi Sunak's Conservatives and Sir Keir Starmer's Labour Party, with the Scottish National Party, Liberal Democrats, and other smaller parties also vying for seats. Sunak, who took office in October 2022, will seek to secure a fresh mandate, while Starmer aims to return Labour to power after 14 years in opposition.

Alongside the national campaign, local battles in key marginal seats will be closely watched, as will the performance of high-profile candidates and party leaders on the campaign trail. Constituency-level polls, opinion polls, and exit polls will provide insights into the likely outcome as election day approaches. Meanwhile, communities across the UK are gearing up for the excitement and debate that comes with a general election.

The 2024 election will be the first held under the reign of King Charles III, following the death of Queen Elizabeth II in September 2022. It also comes in the wake of major events like the Covid-19 pandemic, the ongoing impact of Brexit, and the war in Ukraine, which have shaped the political landscape and the priorities of voters.

As the UK prepares to make a crucial decision about its future, our NewsNow feed on the 2024 general election will keep you informed with the latest updates, analysis, and results from trusted sources. From the announcement of the election date to the formation of the new government, we'll provide comprehensive coverage of this historic event.
