David Cameron leading in Britain’s polls

London: Britain’s Conservative Party headed by prime minister David Cameron is leading in the general elections held on Thursday, winning 292 out of the total 650 seats in the House of Commons.

Ed Miliband’s Labour Party has secured 219 seats, the Scottish National Party (SNP) 56, the Democratic Unionist Party and the Liberal Democrats are tied at eight, BBC reported.

Cameron said the election result is “clearly a very strong result for the Conservative Party”, adding the party has had “a very positive response to a very positive campaign”.

He said the Conservatives published a manifesto squarely for working people, which he hopes to be able to implement in full.
