Hung Parliament As Conservatives Fall Short Of Majority In General Election

Latest on the General Election: The Night 'Politics Has Changed'

There will be a hung parliament in the General Election as the Conservative party fall short of a majority.

They have been projected to win between 315 and 321 seats, fewer than the 326 they need to form a majority. Meanwhile, it looks as though Labour will end up with between 260 – 266 seats.

The Conservatives are still on track to be the largest party, but Prime Minister Theresa May is facing calls to quit as she looks set to have fewer MPs than when she first called the election.

Speaking to Grazia, Harry Carr, who is head of data at Sky News, says, ‘It looks like it’s going to be a hung parliament, but likely that the Conservatives and the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) will be able to make up a majority between them. This leaves confidence in Theresa May very much diminished.

‘May said herself during the campaign if she lost six seats it would put Jeremy Corbyn, the Labour leader, in charge of Brexit negotiations’, he adds. As it stands, it looks like she has lost 13 seats.
