Labour forecast to fall short of overall majority by 1
This is the latest UK-Elect forecast for the 2016 London Assembly Election. It predicts that Labour will again fall one seat short of a majority.
This forecast was created on May 28th 2015. Further forecasts will be made at frequent intervals before the next London Assembly Election
The overall percentages used for this forecast were based on the actual result at the 2015 UK General Election. The percentages used for both the Constituency and AMS Regional Member vote were: Constituency Vote: Lab 43.69% Con 34.88%, UKIP 8,12%, Lib Dem 7.71%, Green 4.85%. Other parties votes were not specifically set. (In reality of course, the AMS votes are likely to differ from the constituency votes, so this forecast should be regarded as a "What If the 2016 London Assembly percentages were similar to the 2015 UK General Election" forecast. As a general guide, as soon as a party that does not win any constituencies passes the 5% minimum thresahold in the London-wide AMS vote, it will start to win seats.)

Notes: The forecast base was the 2012 London Assembly Election. The UK-Elect v10.0 forecasting method was used (UK-Elect supports many alternatives). The forecast was (of course) made using the Additional Member System used in the London Assembly elections.) Changes and swings are in comparison with the previous election. UK-Elect Standard and Professional Edition users who would like to reproduce this forecast should first update their London Assembly 2012 data-files (see the UK-Elect Downloads Page for details).
