May seeks help of N. Irish party to form minority government

Even if the exit poll has underestimated the number of Conservative seats, as it did in 2015, and the party ends up with a slim majority, May will be so weakened that she may not be able to keep the job.

Mr Corbyn said, 'There isn't a parliamentary majority for anybody at the present time, the party that has lost in this election is the Conservative Party, the arguments the Conservative Party put forward in this election have lost.

"It is the policy of both the Conservative party and the UK Labour party to respect the Brexit referendum result".

British Prime Minister Theresa May will be forced to seek the support of a regional party in order to continue governing, after the general election she called backfired dramatically.

"I'm sorry for all those candidates and hard working party workers who weren't successful", May said on Friday after a surprise resurgence by the main opposition Labour Party under its leftwing leader Jeremy Corbyn. The Conservatives are in talks with the Democratic Unionist Party to form a minority government. But the election result meant it was unclear whether her plan to take Britain out of the bloc's single market and customs union could still be pursued.

May could not get a majority in the parliament, because she had US President Donald "Trump's politics" and former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's "demeanor", which is a fatal combination, the analyst elaborated.

The 10 DUP MPs could prove crucial in supporting the Conservatives on key votes after Thursday's election saw Mrs May lose control of the Commons.

"I wanted to achieve a larger majority, and that was not the result we achieved", she said.

In another twist in the United Kingdom political landscape, the country is facing a hung Parliament after Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservative party failed to win enough votes to keep an overall majority in the House of Commons in yesterday's snap election.

The "hung parliament" has some analysts speculating about a second general election, which would further destabilize upcoming Brexit negotiations that are expected to start on June 19.

Nicola Sturgeon, the Scottish first minister and head of the Scottish National party, said May "lost all authority and credibility" while Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron said she "should be ashamed" and should resign "if she has an ounce of self-respect".

Her opponents also took issue with her refusal to take part in a televised debate with other party leaders. There is a possibility that a progressive alliance may have as many seats as the Conservatives.
