The United Kingdom has traditionally had a dominant two party system, and all national governments since the 1920s have been led by either the Labour Party or the Conservative Party, but the third largest party, the Liberal Democrats, currently hold over 9% of the seatsin the Commons. These three main parties operate throughout Great Britain, but hardly at all in the other part of the United Kingdom, Northern Ireland. There, even more than in Scotland and Wales, local political parties are important, but such parties are much less significant in England. There are also some minor United Kingdom-wide parties.
