Senior BJP leader LK Advani on Saturday said there was no question of coming Lok Sabha elections throwing up a hung Parliament and he was optimistic that BJP will emerge as the single-largest party with its highest-ever tally so far.
Britons Thursday voted in what is
billed as the most tightly-contested general election since
the World War II which could lead to a hung Parliament, though
latest opinion polls gave a clear edge to opposition Tories
over the ruling Labour as well as Liberal Democrats.
Britain`s Conservatives held their lead in the tightest election race in nearly 20 years after a close-fought second live TV debate, although the vote is likely to end in a stalemate, polls suggested on Saturday.
A day before PM Gordon
Brown and his Tory opponent David Cameron argued in a TV debate, a new poll indicated that the
Conservative lead has slashed by 3 points making it appear
that London is headed for a hung Parliament.
With the possibility of a hung
parliament looking strong, proposals are being drafted to
allow Gordon Brown remain the British premier for an extra
period to form a working government after the general election
Britain`s civil service is quietly preparing for a hung Parliament, codifying in a single document the role of the Queen Elizabeth II in the event of no party winning an absolute majority in General Elections scheduled this year.
