COLUMBIA, Mo. – With the 2015 elections for the Parliament of the United Kingdom to be held Thursday, a new election model developed by political scientists at the University Missouri predicts a hung parliament with the Labour Party winning a plurality. Mary Stegmaier, an assistant professor in the MU Truman School of Public Affairs, says this new model predicts voters will shift their support away from the traditional parties in favor of smaller political parties.
