Britain’s voters have elected the first hung parliament in decades, the BBC reports Friday, with the British pound declining on the news that no party had secured a clear majority.
The BBC reported voter allegations that some were turned away from closing polls, and that overseas voters had been ‘denied ballots.”
Nick Clegg called the election “a disappointment” for the Liberal Democrats, while David Cameron charged that Gordon Brown’s Labour party had lost its mandate to govern the country, the BBC said.
