Survey predicts Conservatives, Labour neck-and-neck in British polls

London: Britain's Conservative and Labour parties are neck-and-neck, according to the voting pattern forecasted on Wednesday, one day before the general elections, Efe news agency reported.

A new poll conducted by research company YouGov found that both of the parties enjoy 34 percent support from the electorate, while the anti-European Union UK Independence Party (UKIP) came in third place with 12 percent, followed by the Liberal Democrats with 9 percent.

Another poll conducted by ComRes gave a slight advantage to the Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron, with 35 percent support, followed by Labour leader Ed Miliband, with 32 percent.

According to ComRes, UKIP's Nigel Farage got 14 percent of the forecasted vote, and Liberal Democrat Nick Clegg ended with 9 percent.

Similar percentages for both major parties were reflected in a poll conducted by Survation, which surveyed more than 1,000 adults across the country, and put Labour ahead with 34 percent, and Conservatives with 33 percent, followed by UKIP with 16 percent and Liberal Democrats with 9 percent.

The voting projections were published just as politicians are scouring the country in a last-minute effort to sway undecided voters.

All signs indicate that neither the Labour nor the Conservative will get the majority to govern alone, and thus both will be in a position to negotiate alliances with more minor political camps.

People in Britain will vote on Thursday in a simple majority system in a single round.
