A hung Parliament explained- By Professor Robert Hazell, UCL

Wiki: hung parliament: 悬吊国会/无多数议会

In parliamentary systems, a hung parliament is one in which no political party has an outright majority of seats. In nations in which single member districts are used to elect parliament, and there are weak regional parties, such as the United Kingdom, a hung parliament is a rarity, as in these circumstances one party will usually hold enough seats to form a majority. A hung parliament will usually force either a coalition government, a minority government or a dissolution of parliament. Frequent hung parliaments can result in smaller parties staying in power for decades as they switch support between the two or three major parties.
