The 2015 has seen a greater sense of representation for women and ethnic minorities
By late morning on Friday. 153 female MPs had been elected, already more than the 148 women in the last Parliament, which was the previous record. In Scotland, more than a third of MPs from Scotland will be women.
Liz Saville-Roberts was elected as Plaid Cymru’s first female MP, comfortably winning her race by 5,000 votes in Dwyfor Meirionydd, north Wales.
This Parliament will feature a record number of non-White MPs, according to British Future. From 27 in the last election, there will now be 41, with the Tories’ 17 moving closer to Labour’s 23.
