Why do you think the elections led to no clear winners? Two reasons: first there is a general disaffection with the political class as a whole and loyalties to particular political parties has been steadily diminishing, even since the 2005 election.  Secondly, I think a key reason for the impasse was that there were very few differences between the parties on key issues, with there was no...
