208 women MPs, a proud record for UK Parliament

The survey predicted the Conservatives will get 314 seats and the Labour Party 266. Here, we tackle some of the questions being raised by BBC audiences. However, many top party officials have called for a "softer" process.

And the former chair of the House of Commons Science and Technology committee, the Conservative Nicola Blackwood, lost her seat in Oxford West and Abingdon. As a result, May's party won't be able to form a government without the help of minority parties. May focussed on her central message of the "strong and stable leadership" that she can provide for Britain's exit negotiations from the European Union (EU).

Why can't the Conservatives and Labour work together to run our country? This meant that the two parties officially agreed to go into government with each other and draw up a shared legislative programme. You can see from their manifesto pledges that there may be more issues that divide them rather than unite them.

But she is under pressure from Tory ranks and a number of MPs have criticised her joint chiefs of staff Nick Timothy and Fiona Hill for the way the election campaign unfolded. The skewed media coverage had suggested that the Brexit vote had left the Labour Party in disarray as Corbyn fought of numerous challenges within his party to remove him as their leader. Another vote could backfire with a drop in turnout.

Prime Minister Theresa May called for a snap election earlier this year with expectations of boosting the Conservative's majority government but her party failed to secure the 326 seats needed to form another majority government. His party grew the most over the course of Thursday's election, with Labour adding more than 30 seats to its Parliamentary total.

Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Commission, said he was also ready to start talks and hoped the United Kingdom general election would not have an impact. This forecast is echoed in the almost 100 million pounds expected to be bet on the outcome of the polls. This would be the quickest way.

How will a hung Parliament affect Brexit and the single market?

May told the British electorate that the election was about strengthening Britain's hand in the tense Brexit negotiations. She had expected to gain a larger majority in order to shepherd through a divorce agreement with the rest of Europe.

Conceding to her dashed hopes of a landslide win, May earlier said: "My resolve is the same that as it has been".

If confirmed, the result would lead to a period of political uncertainty and could throw Britain's negotiations to leave the European Union - due to start June 19 - into disarray. The Tories had been riding high, and the election reset the timetable around the Brexit talks.

What is The Queen's Speech and how can you be "defeated" on it?
