David Cameron, the conservative leader is elected member of parliament, he is expected to become the next Prime Minister. But, to get the control of the British Parliament - and therefore the right to form the Government - requires that a party wins a majority of seats in the House of Commons in a General Election. To get an outright majority, the Tory party needs 326 seats whereas it only has 306.

Consequences : Will there be a coalition ? Will Gordon Brown, the present time Prime Minister, try an anti-tory alliance with the Liberal Democrats and nationalists (especially the Celtic fringe)? The power is in the hands of minority parties.
This is known as a hung parliament.
