Nick Clegg says Tories have right to seek to govern


Liberal Democrat Leader Nick Clegg has said the political party with the most seats has the first right to seek to form a government.

The Conservatives have won the largest share of the vote in the general election, but not enough to secure an overall majority.

Speaking to reporters, Mr Clegg said the election campaign had made it 'abundantly clear' the electoral system was 'broken'.
