Britain's snap election backfires on Prime Minister Theresa May

Britain's snap election backfires on Prime Minister Theresa May

Instead of accepting defeat, however, May claims that she will continue to push for Brexit negotiations.

The Conservatives won 319 seats, seven short of a majority in the House of Commons and 12 fewer than they had going into the election.

Earlier, she announced she would form a majority government with the Democratic Unionist Party to keep the Tories in power.

As Mrs May seeks to shore up DUP support, could Labour leader Corbyn mount a challenge for Downing Street? By the time Britain went to the polls on Thursday, Labour was expected to cut into the simple majority the Conservatives had previously enjoyed. That means the DUP would back the government on confidence motions and budget votes, but it's not a coalition government or a broader pact.

With the Brexit talks set to be held on 19 June, EU leaders predicted that it may be possible that the United Kingdom will demand a delay from the European Union as the formation of a government can possibly take a while following the results of the general elections.

However she said he, along with foreign secretary Boris Johnson, home secretary Amber Rudd, defence secretary Michael Fallon and Brexit minister David Davis would remain in their posts.

The talks with the European Union about Brexit are supposed to start in just ten days.

There is also the potential that this result may also delay or disrupt Brexit talks, which are due to start this month.

The unhappy result of these conditions is that it will be hard to create a strong negotiating position on Brexit, and British negotiators will be left groping for solid political ground on which to take a stand.

Splash News/NewscomTheresa May's Conservative Party ended up losing 13 seats in Britain's elections yesterday.

The DUP said its main motivation is to prevent the Labour's Jeremy Corbyn from becoming Prime Minister. Beleaguered May is appointing new members of her government after several.

"I don't worry about that, partly because I think that the Democratic Party has stayed pretty grounded in fact and reality", Obama told Axelrod at the time. "In my view it may well just be a period of transition", she told LBC radio.

The Czech prime minister said Friday that Britain should not be granted any extension on the two-year deadline for the Brexit talks.

"Britain is about to find out the price of that failure".

The London Evening Standard, edited by former finance minister George Osborne who May sacked, splashed with a photo of her under the headline "Queen of Denial". "This is a very bad moment for the Conservative Party, and we need to take stock", Conservative lawmaker Anna Soubry said. It projected 34 for the Scottish National Party and 14 for the Liberal Democrats. The two parties are unlikely to be reunited in coalition without major compromises on the central principle of their election manifestos: Brexit.

May had advocated a "hard Brexit" - a withdrawal that includes a clean break from the European Union's single market and customs union.
