Three political party leaders in Britain resigned after the British election on May 7th.
Ed Miliband resigned as the Leader of the (left-of-center) Labour Party after the worst Labour result since 1987.
After huge losses for the centrist Liberal Democratic party, the Leader of that party, Nick Clegg, resigned.
The Liberal Democrats were hit particularly hard, and the party has been reduced from 57 seats in Parliament in 2010 down to just eight now.
Nigel Farage, the leader of the smaller right-wing nationalist party UKIP (U.K. Independence Party) also reportedly will resign. The party only got one Member of Parliament into the House of Commons. Farage has “wavered” on resigning and has not yet technically left his post.
