ELECTION: Cameron seeking Liberal Democrat support for Government
CONSERVATIVE leader David Cameron today extended his hand to Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg in a bid to seize Number 10.
Mr Cameron made an address at 2.30pm following today's General Election results that left his party with the largest number of seats but still short of being able to form a majority Government.
The Witney MP said the country had voted for change yesterday as he attacked Gordon Brown and Labour for seeking to cling to power.
Mr Clegg had already said today he believed Mr Cameron should be given the first chance to form a Government and the Conservative leader thanked him for that.
He then went on to lay out his plans.
One option would be to run a minority Government with an understanding from other parties they would not torpedo its legislation.
However, he also said he was looking to work with the Liberal Democrats.
Mr Cameron was quick to state that there would be little compromise over differences between the parties on immigration, defence and Europe.
But he added he believed there was a lot of common ground between them.
