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).
