Under the fixed-term parliament act UK Parliamentary general elections are held every five years. However, there is still the possibility that elections can be more often if enough MPs agree.
The candidate with the most votes in each constituency becomes the MP for that area. This voting system is called 'first past the post'. Usually, the political party with the most MPs then forms the government, although two or more parties with a combined majority of MPs may form a coalition government.
