Conservative Party (UK)

British political party

The Conservative Party, officially the Conservative and Unionist Party, and also known colloquially as the Tories, Tory Party, or simply the Conservatives, is a political party in the United Kingdom. Ideologically, the Conservatives sit on the centre-right of the political spectrum. The Conservatives formed a fixed term coalition government with the Liberal Democrats from 2010–15. Following the 2015 election, the Conservatives formed a Government with a 12-seat majority. A snap general election in 2017 meant they held power without an overall majority until 2019, when they regained an overall majority in the House of Commons, with 364 Members of Parliament. The party also has 258 appointed members of the House of Lords, 9 members of the London Assembly, 31 members of the Scottish Parliament, 16 members of the Senedd and 7,445 local authority councillors.
