What is a hung parliament? - 2010 Election in pictures
A hung parliament is where no party has an overall majority, which means no party has more than half of MPs in the House of Commons.
That means that an absolute majority would require one party to win 326 seats and that if no party won that many seats there would be a hung parliament.
