“This person will represent a local area (constituency) in the House of Commons for up to five years,” the website states. “There is a selection of several candidates in each constituency. Some will be the local candidates of the national political parties. The candidate who receives the most votes becomes their deputy.”

“The political party that wins the most seats in the House of Commons in a general election usually forms the new government,” he adds later. “Their leader becomes prime minister.”
