Phil Halsall, chief executive of the county council and returning officer for the election, said: "As no party has a clear majority, the main parties will need to consider the options for the future political governance of the council.
"These discussions will be taking place as a priority and an announcement will be made as soon as possible."
The leader of the council is due to be formally appointed at the next meeting of the full council, which takes place at County Hall on Thursday 23 May.
