Polls suggest that the UK general election on May 7 will result in a hung parliament. A coalition, or a minority government backed by a “confidence and supply” deal with other parties, is likely to come to power. This graphic shows the scenarios possible based on the final pre-election projection from ElectionForecast.co.uk. Compare this to the exit poll, the outgoing parliament or create your own distribution of seats by adjusting the sliders below.
Although 326 seats is a majority in the 650-seat House of Commons, Sinn Féin MPs do not take their seats and the Speaker and Deputy Speakers do not vote, so the number of seats needed to win a vote will be lower, probably 323.
