British PM Theresa May to form government after party weakened by election

Parmenio Sano | 11 Giugno, 2017, 06:56

But, after intensive talks with the DUP as the final election results came in, the PM instead drove the short distance to Buckingham Palace to ask the Queen for permission to form a new government.

With one seat left to declare, the Tories are eight seats short of the 326 figure needed to command a majority.

The prime minister is attempting to stay in office on the understanding that the Democratic Unionist Party will support her minority administration.

Shadow chancellor John McDonnell told the BBC that Labour is "ready to form a government....we are willing to serve the country".

The Tories are forecast to end up with 319 seats ahead of Labour on 261, the SNP 35 and the Lib Dems on 12.

Together the Tories and the DUP would have 329 MPs, which would be enough to govern and pass the Queen's Speech.

The Prime Minister's situation appeared precarious as Conservative former minister Anna Soubry said she should "consider her position" and take personal responsibility for a "dreadful" campaign and a "deeply flawed" manifesto after choosing to go to the country three years early in the hope of extending her majority.

JEREMY CORBYN has defied his critics as a night of election shocks meant Labour gained seats for the first time since Tony Blair's landslide win in 1997.


It is understood that there will be no formal coalition but an agreed understanding on a vote-by-vote basis.

The DUP is now meeting to discuss what it has said is a "messy" situation. Talk of an agreement was described as "premature".

Chief among Labour's potential allies would be the Scottish National Party, which suffered major setbacks but still won a majority of Scottish seats.

A hung Parliament - where there is no overall victor - has happened six times in Great Britain, occurring in 1909, 1929, 1974, 2010 and 2017.

Asked if she thought May would be able to stay in her job, the DUP leader told the BBC: "I don't know", adding: "I think it will be hard for her to survive". "The last thing the Conservatives need now is another election, particularly after the disastrous results of the general election", Tonge said.

Mr Corbyn, speaking after being re-elected in Islington North, said it was time for Mrs May to "make way" for a government that would be "truly representative of the people of this country".

The prime minister, who kept her seat in Maidenhead, said if the Tories won the "most seats and most votes" it would be "incumbent on us" to deliver the period of stability she promised voters.
