In three weeks' time, voters will cast their ballots to determine the next prime minister.

Political parties have been busy campaigning following the snap election announcement by current prime minister Rishi Sunak, who revealed the vote would be held on Thursday 4 July.

The Tory leader was hoping to narrow the significant lead held by the Labour Party in the polls but so far has had a torrid time campaigning.

Last week, Sunak was criticised for missing a major international ceremony marking the 80th anniversary of D-Day in order to take part in a TV interview.

On Monday, he vowed to carry on “until the last day of this campaign” amid rumours he could quit.

Both Labour and the Tories have since unveiled their manifestos in a bid to appeal to as many voters as possible.

But in order toknow how to vote, you also need to know who you are voting for.
