1918General Election: Victory for Lloyd-George Coalition

There was no General Election between 1910 and 1918 because of the Great War, and the 1918 General Election took place only a month after the war ended, with many men still in uniform. It was also the first General Election in which women had the right to vote. Lloyd George had become Prime Minister in 1916, replacing Asquith, with Conservative support but splitting his own Liberal Party. He fought the 1918 General Election as head of a coalition with 159 Liberal candidates and 364 Conservatives. The immediate result was a landslide victory for the Coalition, but the election marked the end of the Liberals as one of the UK's two main governing parties, Labour becoming the official opposition.
