ANSWER

Coalition government


SOLUTION
When no party gets the required majority to form the government, some of the political parties join together and make alliances to get the required majority to form the government. Such alliance is called Post-poll alliance. At certain times two or more than two parties join together and make alliance before the elections. This type of alliance is called Pre-poll alliance. Pre-poll or Post-poll alliance helps political parties to join together to form the government when there is a hung parliament or assembly. Such a government formed with the co-operation of different political parties is called Coalition Government. The political parties of Coalition Government share power by joining Council of Ministers.
