U.K Election 2015: Candidates rally support for Thursday polls

Party leaders as well as the three candidates in the United Kingdom’s general elections appear to be making a last-ditch grab for votes on the final day of campaigning before tomorrow’s polls.
While, incumbent Prime Minister David Cameron of the Conservatives Party said the country was “stronger than it was five years ago” but there was “more to do”, another candidate, Labour Party’s Ed Miliband urged people to vote “to reward hard work in our country again” while Nick Clegg of the Lib Dems said his party would offer “stability and decency”.
Polls suggest no party will win enough seats for an outright majority.

According to analyst, Mr. James Landale, the BBC deputy political editor, politicians, pollsters and the media were still struggling to read the election, leading many to focus on what might happen if there is an uncertain result.
“As such, Thursday might not be the end of the process,” he said. “It might just be the calling of the half-time whistle.”
While therefore optimism prevails for the ruling party, whose candidate, David Cameron says the Conservatives can win Thursday’s election outright, Ed Miliband says he is also optimistic about the opposition Labour party’s prospects and he trusts the public to make the “right judgement”
The main party leaders have been criss-crossing the country in their battle buses as they attempt to drum up support ahead of Thursday’s poll.
After starting the day in south Wales, Cameron is heading to north-west England, Scotland and the Midlands, while Miliband is visiting Conservative-held marginal seats in the north of England.
The prime minister, whose Conservative Party won 307 seats in 2010, has renewed his attack on the possibility of a minority Labour government propped up by the Scottish National Party (SNP), saying it would face “huge questions of credibility”.
Cameron insisted a Conservative victory was “within reach” but insisted that he would put “the country first” whatever the outcome of Thursday’s poll by working to provide “strong and stable” government.
The Conservative leader said he had achieved a lot since 2010 but was “not satisfied” with current levels of deprivation and educational under-achievement in parts of the country and wanted to push harder on welfare and schools reforms.
Miliband is looking to improve on the 258 seats Labour won in 2010 under the leadership of former Prime Minister Gordon Brown.
Speaking in the marginal Lancashire seat of Pendle, the Labour leader said his party would have more activists on the ground on Thursday helping to get out the vote than the other parties combined.
He warned that another Conservative-led government “propped up by the Lib Dems” would “raid family budgets and cut the NHS”.
“This is the clearest choice that has been put before the British public for a generation. Between a Tory government that is for the privileged few and a Labour government that puts working people first.”
