First hung parliament in UK since 1974

| May 7, 2010 | 0 Comments

It’s official, the general election has resulted in a hung parliament after the Conservative Party failed to win the required 326 seats which would give them an overall majority.

Gordon Brown has returned to Downing Street this morning and he is expected to form a coalition Government with the Lib Dems.

However, leader of the Lib Dems, Nick Clegg, said the Tories should get the first opportunity to form a coalition Government.

The fact remains, though, that Gordon Brown could still continue as PM in a hung parliament despite the Conservatives having the biggest share of the vote, they do not hold the authority to form a new Government.

David Cameron is set to announce his intentions at 2.30pm today.
