Sanders 'Delighted' by Corbyn's Success in UK Election

10 Juin, 2017, 21:27 | Author: Claudine Rigal

She has been found out. "I'm not sure that we should read, from the results of this vote, that Britons' sovereign decision on Brexit has been cast into doubt in any way".

With all but one of the seats declared, the Conservatives, or "Tories", had taken 318 seats, which means voters have elected their second hung parliament in less than a decade.

"She's staying, for now", the source told Reuters.

The analysis comes as the Tories were still trying to accept the fact that they had failed to win a majority, despite a confident Mrs May calling the election back in April. Further announcements were expected on Saturday.

Some senior Tories have made the removal of Hill and Timothy a condition for continuing to support May, who has vowed to remain prime minister despite the Conservatives' losing their overall majority in Parliament.

May, 60, said the two parties have enjoyed a strong relationship over many years, and she believes that they will be able to work together in the interest of the country.

Instead of improving the Conservative hold on the House, she weakened it to the point that it will only take four dissidents from the coalition membership to topple the government.

"I will now form a government", May said in front of 10 Downing Street moments after she spoke with Queen Elizabeth, "a government that can provide certainty and lead Britain forward at this critical time for our country".

It was not immediately clear what the DUP's demands might be and one DUP lawmaker suggested support might come vote by vote. In their own case, their likely partners will be the Scottish National Party and the Liberal Democrats, both of whom are even more opposed to Brexit than Labour and will use it as a bargaining chip.

DUP Leader Arlene Foster recently denied the party was homophobic.

The EU's chief negotiator said the bloc's stance on Brexit and the timetable for the talks were clear, but the divorce negotiations should only start when Britain is ready.

Clearly, the general election result was a huge disappointment.

But European Council President Donald Tusk tweeted on Friday: "We don't know when Brexit talks start".

The election results create uncertainty surrounding the negotiations over Britain's exit from the European Union.

May's predecessor David Cameron sought to silence eurosceptic fellow Conservatives by calling the referendum on European Union membership, expecting Britons to vote to remain.

The last hung Parliament result in the United Kingdom was in 2010, when David Cameron took over as PM and formed a Conservative- led coalition with the Liberal Democrats.

Meanwhile, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said on Friday that the Scottish National Party will work to forge an alliance to keep May's Conservatives out of power after the inconclusive result to Britain's national election. If May (or her successor from within the party) proves unable to navigate this dynamic, Britain could see the quick collapse of the coalition government and new elections.

Labour party Leader Jeremy Corbyn gives a thumbs up as he arrives at Labour Party headquarters in central London, June 9, 2017.

Jeremy Corbyn, the Labour leader, has urged May to resign as he said she should "go and make way for a government that is truly representative of this country".
