David Cameron - Prime Minister (May 11, 2010 - Present).

David William Donald Cameron is currently the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. He is the leader of the Conservative and Unionist Party and has been elected as a Member of Parliament from Witney, Oxfordshire. David Cameron won the party leadership election in 2005, became the UK Prime Minister in 2010 and was re-elected in 2015.

During the premiership, he has brought about significant changes in the immigration policy and introduced numerous initiatives in healthcare and education sectors. He introduced the Welfare Reform Act of 2012, which changed the rules related to the social security system of the country.

Since 2010, he has been continuously making immigration reforms and in 2014 he successfully tabled the Immigration Act, which prevents illegal immigrants from obtaining accommodation, driving licence, credit card, bank account, etc.

Once he became head of Britain's Conservative party, Cameron sought to modernize it and shed its right-wing image. Cameron positioned his party well for the general election of 2010, and when Gordon Brown resigned as prime minister, he replaced him. Cameron and his party won the general elections of 2015, with the Conservatives having a substantial majority in the House of Commons.
