  United Kingdom general election, 1951 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Elections for the Board of Trustees of the Wikimedia Foundation are complete.
The 1951 election was held soon after the UK general election, 1950, which Labour won, but with an unworkable majority.
They called an election on October 25, 1951, hoping to win more seats, but instead lost to the Conservative Party, who were able to form a government, with a workable majority (when the National Liberals were included) of 17, despite gaining less votes than Labour.

 Election Resources on the Internet: Parliamentary Elections in the U.K. - Elections to the House of Commons
The United Kingdom Parliament is composed of the Crown, that is the monarch, the House of Lords, an appointive and hereditary upper chamber, and the popularly elected lower chamber, the House of Commons.
For general election purposes, the United Kingdom is currently divided into 646 constituencies, each of which returns one Member of Parliament (MP) to the House of Commons, elected for a maximum term of five years.
The outcome of a general election is actually decided in these seats, and political parties concentrate their efforts in retaining their own marginals, and capturing those held by their opponents.
