How to look out for a winner:
- Majority – a party must win in 326 constituencies. The winning party will then go to Buckingham Palace to ask the Queen’s permission to form a new government.
- Hung Parliament – there is no clear majority winner. The PM in charge before, in this case Boris Johnson, will be given the first chance to create a new government. In this case there could be a coalition, an attempt to govern with a minority number of MP’s or to resign and recommend the leader of the largest opposition party to form a government.
- Coalition – When two parties build an alliance to form a government.
