What happens if there’s a Hung Parliament?

A hung parliament is now being predicted with no majority government, This has only happened twice since 1929.

But what does a hung Parliament actually mean?

 

Here in the United Kingdom if a party is able to reach 326 seats out of 650 they will win a majority government. But the Exit Poll is suggesting that the General Election 2017 result will be a minority government.

So how do they move forward?

Which means we are in a hung parliament, The party with the most seats then has the opportunity to form a coalition government. or they can form a minority government,

Should they decide to form a minority government they need the support of the other parties in order to pass any legislature.

What happens if they fail to form a coalition or minority government?

If there is no coalition or minority government formed then a fresh election will have to be called.

In 2016 exit polls for Trump and Brexit were wrong but they have never been wrong in the history of the general elections.
