Majority Government in United Kingdom

Majority government Meaning in Politics

Description of Majority government published by Mona Chalabi: When a government is formed by a party that has an absolute majority of seats in the House of Commons — at the moment, that requires 326 seats. (The current coalition between the Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats is considered a majority government because together the two parties hold 358 seats.) A majority government doesn’t appear to be a likely outcome of the 2015 election, though — the forecast currently points to only about a 10 percent chance that any party will win enough seats to govern alone.
