OUR Turkish-speaking community members from the United Kingdom participated in our election polls and announced which party they would vote for.
Today on Thursday 12 December the UK is holding an early general election. Voting will begin at 7am and will end at 10pm. As Londra Gazete, we conducted two separate polls on our Facebook page and to see which political party the Turkish-speaking community would vote for.
In the surveys we conducted on Monday and Tuesday, the Labour Party was the political party that the Turkish-speaking community would vote with a great distance.
According to our surveys which reaching over 23,000 people in two days, most of our community said they will vote for the Labour Party.
According to the common results of both surveys, 58% of the Turkish-speaking community will vote for the Labour Party, 30% for the Conservative Party, 6% for the Liberal Democratic Party, 5% for the Green Party and 1% for the Brexit Party.
Although the Conservative Party maintains its superiority in different polls conducted throughout the country, more than 2 million new voters register to give hope to the opposition parties.
