Theresa May to 'reflect' after losing majority in Parliament

"The arguments the Conservative Party put forward in this election have lost, and we need to change", he said.

With 649 of 650 seats declared, the Conservatives had won 318 seats and Labour 261 followed by pro-independence Scottish National Party on 34.

However, the Democratic Unionist leader and first minister of Northern Ireland, Arlene Foster, said she wants to "bring stability to our nation" by backing Theresa May and the Conservatives to continue in power the Guardian reported.

"She's staying, for now", the source told Reuters. But after meeting with the queen, Theresa May insisted she will carry on. Further announcements were expected on Saturday.

Speaking from the steps of Number 10 Downing Street, the Prime Minister said: "What the country needs more than ever is certainty, and having secured the largest number of votes and the greatest number of seats in the General Election, it is clear that only the Conservative and Unionist Party has the legitimacy and ability to provide that certainty by commanding a majority in the House of Commons".

PARKER: I think her time as prime minister now is measured in months rather than in years.

It was not immediately clear what the DUP's demands might be and one suggested support might come vote by vote. In one sense the British people have dealt themselves a hard hand politically, for they now have to live with the prospect of continuing uncertainty on the direction that their country will take with regard to Brexit and also other domestic concerns.

Those flaws were skilfully exploited by Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, a veteran grassroots activist who hammered away at May as cold and uncaring.

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.

European Union leaders expressed concern that May's loss of her majority would raise the risk of negotiations failing, resulting in a legal limbo for people and business.

Cavaliers rout Warriors in feisty Game 4 to stay alive
Fans anticipating a historic National Basketball Association night were rewarded early, but likely not with what they expected. The idea that the Warriors could go through the entire postseason without losing a game should be irrational.


Cavaliers romp over Warriors to avoid sweep
In the first quarter, the referees called so many fouls on the Warriors, the Cavs shot a record 22 free throws. Green was thought to have been ejected after recording a perceived second technical foul.


The Labour Party has said it was prepared to form a coalition government, with Mr Corbyn announcing: "We are ready to serve".

Germany's European Commissioner Gunther Oettinger said "a weaker partner weakens the whole thing", while if both sides were strong "you get results more quickly".

There was little sympathy for May from some Europeans.

May also assumed that the centrists and moderates who had voted Conservative in 2015 and to "Remain" in Europe in 2016 would have to vote for her because they would have nowhere else to go.

Ruth Davidson, leader of Conservatives in Scotland, said the results showed the Conservatives should prioritise good trade relations with the EU.

May remains defiant on Brexit, vowing to deliver the will of the people. It was so badly thought through and we have to be honest about that and accept it.

Britain's best-selling Sun newspaper said senior members of her party had vowed to get rid of May, but would wait at least six months because they were anxious that a leadership contest now could propel Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn into power. To be the ruling party, May's party needed to get at least 326 seats.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said May should resign.

May called the election six weeks ago to secure a stronger mandate ahead of the negotiations in Brussels but landed up weakening the conservatives in Parliament.

The election campaign was rocked by two terror attacks, which drew attention to May's record in her former job as interior minister, while her own performances were heavily criticised.
