United Kingdom election: Brexit plans in disarray

Sveva Terracina | 20 Giugno, 2017, 00:41

However, the Tories were polling incredibly well back in April, so Theresa May made a calculated risk to call for an early election in an effort to bolster her numbers in Parliament. "If.the Conservative Party has won the most seats and probably the most votes then it will be incumbent on us to ensure that we have that period of stability and that is exactly what we will do", she said.

Theresa May returned to Downing Street and will govern with support from Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party after a disastrous election night for the PM saw her party lose its Commons majority.

In 2010, Gordon Brown held onto the premiership for six days as frantic negotiations took place, resigning only when it became clear that the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats had reached agreement on a viable coalition.

"She is prime minister, she remains prime minister and the country has to come first", said Ian Duncan Smith, a former Conservative Party leader and one of the most prominent campaigners to leave the European Union.

She said Brexit talks would begin on June 19 as scheduled, the same day as the formal reopening of parliament.

A defiant Prime Minister Theresa May vowed Friday to form a government to lead Britain out of the European Union despite losing her majority in a snap general election and facing calls to resign.

Trump, who was answering a shouted question from a reporter during an Oval Office photo opportunity, did not expand on his comment. Perhaps we mean that the United Kingdom will be forced to accept membership on the European single market?


"I would have thought that's enough to go", said main opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn. Nicola Sturgeon, leader of the SNP, said the results were "a disaster for Theresa May", the BBC reports.

Many in the party believe she has been fatally wounded.

On Friday, European officials and lawmakers commented on the apparent political uncertainty in Britain. However, no party received the absolute majority of seats in parliament and the election has resulted in a hung parliament.

Of the agreement she said: "This will allow us to come together as a country and channel our energies towards a successful Brexit deal that works for everyone in this country, securing a new partnership with the European Union which guarantees our long-term prosperity".

Dr Robin Niblett, director of Chatham House in London, said May's Conservative party still contains fierce Brexiteers who will challenge every concession, but the proportion of her MPs who voted to Remain and who want a pragmatic Brexit is higher than expected. Several Conservative members of parliament, including Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson, have also raised concerns about the DUP's opposition to same-sex marriage.

People demonstrate on Whitehall, central London, Saturday June 10, 2017, after the British general election result.

"Her position I think is very, very hard". Also, the U.K. Independence Party (UKIP) appeared to secure zero seats.
