With just days to go, the likely outcome of Britain’s general election is still too close to call.

The latest polls show no party opening up enough of a lead to rule alone.

Prime Minister David Cameron’s Conservative party has a one percentage point lead over the opposition Labour Party, according to a YouGov poll for the Sunday Times. It puts the Tories on 34 percent.

While a Survation poll for the Mail on Sunday says Labour has a three point lead over its Conservative rivals.

Other figures, from polling organisation ComRes, show both parties running neck and neck.

The Scottish National Party is on five percent, according to Survation. Its leader Nicola Sturgeon is enjoying high approval ratings and could potentially become the kingmaker in the election.

The Liberal Democrats, currently in a coalition with the Conservatives, are remaining consistent in the latest polls, on eight percent.

There is a reported increase in support for the anti European Union UK Independence Party. It stands between 13 and 17 percent.

Voters head to the ballot box on 7 May 2015.
