The re-elected MP for Brighton Pavilion, the former Green Party leader Caroline Lucas has called for a reform of the voting system.
The politician held on to the Green Party's only parliamentary seat, winning 22,871 votes in the Brighton Pavilion constituency. However, more than a million people cast votes for Green candidates - Ms Lucas says that means there is something wrong with our voting system and she called for electoral reform, saying she would ally herself with other parties or organisations calling for change - including UKIP which also has just one MP after winning more than 3.7 million votes.
"I think it's a real travesty over a million people voted Green up and down the country and yet that's been translated into just one seat.
"I'm feeling fairly confident that as a result of what we've seen tonight there will be a real movement outside of Parliament, a real anger for people wanting voting reform."
