  United Kingdom general election, 2001 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The UK general election, 2001 was held on 7 June 2001 and was dubbed "the quiet landslide" by the media.
The elections were marked by apathy from the voting public, with turnout falling by to 59%, the lowest since 1918.
The election had been expected in May, to coincide with local elections, but both were postponed because of rural movement restrictions imposed in response to a foot and mouth outbreak.

 United Kingdom general election, 2005 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The United Kingdom general election of 2005 was held on Thursday, 5 May 2005 and won by the Labour Party, led by Tony Blair.
In Northern Ireland, the election was dominated in the unionist community by a battle between the Ulster Unionist Party (UUP) and the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) to be the region's largest unionist party in Parliament.
Other elections in the province have shown both a shift in votes towards the DUP but also a collapse of support for the cross-community Alliance Party which is likely to be more marked in a first past the post election and thus which may work in the UUP's favour.

 Wikisource talk:Election data - Wikisource
I begin with "Election results" (or possibly even simply "Elections" to reduce length) because that's the most important term in all this class of articles, and the chance of ambiguity with other subjects is less likely.
Another advantage of using "Elections" alone might be that it is identical, or at least similar, in several languages.
Starting with "Election results" would be best because it is the most important element; starting with anything else could be confused with other developments in that same country or other developments in a certain year.

It is therefore essential, if the general will is to be able to express itself, that there should be no partial society within the State, and that each citizen should think only his own thoughts: which was indeed the sublime and unique system established by the great Lycurgus.
These precautions are the only ones that can guarantee that the general will shall be always enlightened, and that the people shall in no way deceive itself.
If nobody is telling nobody what they want, there’s bound to be a conflict of interest between the general will and the will of a partial society.
