Theresa May is forming a minority government - here's what that actually means

Irune Rengel | 14 Junio, 2017, 11:02

May's party won 318 seats, eight short of the 326 they needed for an outright majority.

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has denied plotting to topple Prime Minister Theresa May, who has been weakened by the Conservative Party's disastrous election result. The Labour Party gained 32 seats, jumping from 229 to 261, setting back May and the Conservative Party.

As for Bangladesh, is there anything we can learn from the way the campaign was conducted on both sides in the general elections in Great Britain or from the manner in which top politicians carried themselves about, and how no major parties shifted from their fundamental alliance and attempted unholy alliances just for poll-time benefits?

May said Friday she will attempt to form a minority government with Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party, or DUP.

In the big book of political blunders, Theresa May's decision to hold a snap election to solidify her Brexit mandate will rank among the most memorable - and the most unnecessary.

May had called the election in order to consolidate her mandate to negotiate Britain's exit from the Europe Union.

On Twitter, Siegfried Muresan, spokesman for the European Parliament's largest grouping, the European People's Party, said, "EU did not want #Brexit, but has been prepared to negotiate it since past year".

Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn casting his vote at a polling station at Pakeman Primary School in London, England, June 8, 2017. This means that not only does her party have less seats in government than when she went into the election but Conservatives do not have enough seats to vote through new laws without being defeated by their opponents.

The poll forecast the Scottish National Party (SNP) would win 34 seats, the center-left Liberal Democrats 14, the Welsh nationalist party Plaid Cymru three and the Greens one.

With almost all votes counted, the Conservative Party is set to end up with 319 seats, according to the BBC.

May, who is the second female Prime Minister for the United Kingdom after Margaret Thatcher, didn't win elections in 2016.

May had also said she was ready to walk away from the Brexit negotiations without a deal, rather than signing up to a "bad deal".

Secretary of State Tillerson said the State Department is continuing to discuss three other detained Americans with North Korea. In the past, North Korea has held out until senior US officials or statesmen came to personally bail out detainees.

May told the British electorate that the election was about strengthening Britain's hand in the tense Brexit negotiations.

"The country needs a period of stability, and whatever the results are the Conservative Party will ensure we fulfil our duty in ensuring that stability", she said.

Though May's Conservative Party emerged as the single largest party on a sensational election night, the impressive show by the Labour Party led by Jeremy Corbyn sent the British politics into turmoil, putting May in a complex situation ahead of the Brexit talks scheduled to start on June 19. Almost 13 million people voted for us to do it.

"She's staying, for now", the source said.

"I don't think that's in the hearts and minds of Londoners at the minute, (not) almost as much as security is", said Sheard, 22.

The increase mostly benefited Labour, which won the majority of seats where turn out was up by more than five per cent.
