The Liberal-Conservative alliance won 110 seats; the Social Democratic-Green alliance won 105. The Liberal Democrats won three. Lord McAlpin succeeded Lord Morrissey as Prime Minister.

Popular disgust with Lord Morrissey's Civil Code of Divorce resulted in the first defeat for the Social Democrats. The Greens fared worst, falling from a hair behind the Main Opposition to fourth place. A testament to their enduring strength, the Social Democrats remained the largest party in Parliament.
