No overall control

In the context of local authorities in the United Kingdom, the term no overall control (abbreviated to NOC; Welsh: dim rheolaeth gyffredinol)[1] refers to a situation in which no single political group achieves a majority of seats, analogous to a hung parliament. Of the 248 councils who had members up for election in the 2019 local elections, 73 (over a quarter) resulted in a NOC administration. In the 2021 election, 14 resulted in no overall control. This term can still be used for several other countries, for example two local councils in Malta and the General Assembly of Budapest in Hungary.
