no one... it was a hung Parliament although the Tories did get 250 seats.
Prior to the 2010 general election, a general election had not caused a hung Parliament since February 1974, when Labour narrowly failed to win an overall majority at the polls.
it was a hung election
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.
None so far, just a lot of politicians talking' .
Elections in the UK are usually held every five or so years for Parliament. The previous election was held in 2010, and the next one will presumably be in 2015.
David Cameron, leader of the Conservative Party, who has been in office since 11 May 2010 after the 2010 United Kingdom General Election, is the UK's current prime minister. He became prime minister after forming a coalition with the Liberal Democrats Party, following a hung parliament in the election. The deputy prime minister of the United Kingdom is Nick Clegg, leader of the Liberal Democrats Party. He assumed office on 11 May 2010, after the 2010 general election. he became deputy prime minister following the Liberal Democrats forming a coalition with the Conservatives.
Prime Ministers do not stand for election in their own right. Every 5 years in the United Kingdom the Sovereign dissolves Parliament and a General Election is called. The Sovereign has the prerogative to ask any elected politician to be her Prime Minister. Normally this would be the leader of the political party with an overall majority in Parliament on the basis that he or she would have the confidence of Parliament. She could, in theory, select someone else. As a result of a Hung Parliament after the 2010 elections Gordon Brown resigned and recommended to Queen Elizabeth II that David Cameron be appointed Prime Minister.
