British Prime Minister David Cameron’s Conservative Party registered a solid victory in the general election winning an overall majority in Parliament.

Miliband said he would stand down on Friday, saying his party needs a new leader.
Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg has also said he will quit.
The United Kingdom went to polls on Thursday in what was being described as one of the toughest elections in decades.
