European Union tells May "no time to lose" on Brexit talks

But her decision to call the general election seems to have backfired, according to the exit poll, leaving the country in even more uncertainty, something financial markets don't react well to.

The pound fell sharply after an exit poll in Britain's election forecast that the Conservatives would fall short of a majority in parliament, raising the prospect that the country might not have a clear victor or strong government as it starts its negotiations to leave the European Union. Instead of strong and stable leadership we witness chaos and uncertainty."May, who had campaigned against Brexit a year ago, delivered her terms for withdrawal on March 29 that included a clean break from the European Union single market".

European Union officials do not know what to make of Britain's inconclusive election result, which throws the future of prime minister Theresa May in doubt and may delay - if not more seriously derail - talks on Brexit. Bohuslav Sobotka said that too much time had already been wasted.

Mr Oettinger said he believed that Mrs May's "Brexit means Brexit" mantra was still operative, but added that the Conservatives would have to decide how they wanted to conduct negotiations, adding: "Then we will see whether this sentence remains". We want to do it quickly, respecting the calendar.

Ms May, who had campaigned against Brexit past year but took over the Conservative party after David Cameron lost last June's Brexit referendum, delivered her terms for withdrawal in March. The opposite happened as she lost her majority and undermined her own authority as prime minister.

"I thought surrealism was a Belgian invention", quipped Verhofstadt, a former Belgian prime minister.

In related news, SVP Gretchen Zech sold 9,781 shares of the firm's stock in a transaction that occurred on Tuesday, May 9th. On average, equities research analysts anticipate that Arrow Electronics, Inc . will post $7.11 EPS for the current year.

But with just 11 days to go before the talks are due to start, May's hand has been anything but strengthened.

In a note to clients, UBS wrote that the relative strength of hardline pro-Brexit groups in a weak Conservative government could make a breakdown in talks more likely and make it harder to reach a trade deal: "A tighter political balance could make it easier for prevent the government from offering the compromises needed to secure a trade deal".

"We need a government that can act", said Günther Oettinger, speaking on Deutschlandfunk, a German public radio station, Friday morning.

Now with the anniversary of Britain's landmark June 23 Brexit vote looming and still no serious negotiations underway, many European Union nations and top officials have had enough.

"The prospect of another election raises the risk of a delay, potentially leaving the United Kingdom without a negotiated exit settlement". The risk of having no deal worries some in Britain, particularly businesses.

"We don't know when Brexit talks start", European Council President Donald Tusk tweeted Friday as the election results became clear.
