The 1945 Northern Ireland general election was held on 14 June 1945. The election saw significant losses for the Ulster Unionist Party, though they retained their majority.
Mirroring the result across the rest of the UK in the 1945 UK general election, candidates standing on behalf of the various Labour parties won a significantly higher vote share of 30%,[nb 1] but this translated into just two new MPs due to the first-past-the-post electoral system.
