A hung parliament is one where no political party has enough MPs to command a majority of seats (50% + 1) in the House of Commons.
A parliament is hung in the physical sense that an object suspended in air from its centre of mass hangs in equilibrium, tilting neither right nor left. In the political sense then, neither the Right nor the Left holds the balance of power.
Thus, some disagree with the use of the term "hung" and the negative connotations this carries. Some prefer to describe hung parliaments as "balanced", as neither the Right nor the Left has a monopoly on power and, theoretically, at least, they are forced to work together to strike a balance.
A Hung Parliament is a situation in which after a General Election, no political party has enough seats in the respective Parliament to form a majority (therefore have more than half of the total seats in the Parliament). Coalition governments are often formed as a result of a Hung Parliament.
A hung parliament is one in which no party has an overall majority. The UK parliament will have 650 seats. If no party gains 326 seats or more in today's General Election, there will be a hung parliament. If there is a hung parliament the two largest parties (Labour and Conservative) will be trying to form pacts with any of the smaller parties in order to gain an effective majority.
because no party had an overall majority
None so far, just a lot of politicians talking' .
A hung Parliament is where one party IE Conservatives have lets say 250 seats. labour has 200 and Lib Dem's have 60. the Conservatives cannot win on the majority as labours and Lib Dem's seats are more than the Conservatives. That is a hung Parliament.
1974 was the last one before was this one
A hung parliament is when no single party wins an overall majority and in order to form a government a coalition is formed. Lots of countries have had that situation. Ireland and the United Kingdom are two examples.
A hung parliament is one where, after voting, neither party has the majority of power (or seats). To put it simply, it's a draw.
The British parliament has often been called the Mother of Parliaments because so many other governments have copied parts of it for their own systems of governments.
no one... it was a hung Parliament although the Tories did get 250 seats.
They were called the model parliament because they were the first actual parliament.
