With most seats declared in the UK General Election, it looks certain that the leading party, David Cameron’s Conservatives, will not win enough seats to gain an overall majority and form a government.

The leading Conservative party need to win at least 326 seats to form the next Government, but look set to gain around 308 seats according to exit polls.

It now looks certain that Britain will have a ‘hung’ parliament with no party gaining enough seats to hold a majority. 

This means that the two main party leaders, David Cameron or Labour’s current Prime Minister Gordon Brown, will have to make a pact with the next largest party, Nick Clegg’s Liberal Democrats to form a coalition government with a working majority.

In this case Nick Clegg, who favours an amnesty for illegal migrants and regional based migration, will have influence over government policy on a range of issues including immigration and electoral reform. For the first time since 1974 no one party will have a free reign or absolute power to change laws.

Former Home Secretary Jacqui Smith and former Immigration Minister Tony McNulty lost their seats following last year’s expenses scandal.
