208 women MPs, a proud record for UK Parliament

British voters headed to the polls after May had called for general elections in April.

May now risks more opposition to her Brexit plans from inside and outside her party, though a party source said leading the Conservatives was seen as too much of a poisoned chalice for her to face an immediate challenge.

The prime minister maintained that the Brexit talks would begin as planned next week, but with her party's loss of 13 seats and its parliamentary majority, May will rely on the support of the DUP vote by vote.

While both Labour and the Conservatives have ruled out a second referendum on Brexit and seem to both favour a "hard" Brexit, the Labour Party has not been explicit about many of its aims on the issue.

In contrast, Conservative voters were more likely to know from the outset which way they were voting, Lord Ashcroft said. But even if the Tories win that seat, it can not form a majority government.

The DUP's deputy leader Nigel Dodds confirmed that the party's condition for shoring up the new Tory government is an assurance that Northern Ireland will not be accorded special European Union status after Brexit that will keep it distinct from the rest of the United Kingdom.

When May called the vote which was held on Thursday, polls said the Conservatives would score an decisive victory and effectively push Britain's Labor Party onto the scrap heap.

Corbyn said that he still could become the United Kingdom prime minister following snap general election where the Conservative party lost parliamentary majority. In the end she chose the former.

Also in the aftermath of Thursday's British election, Paul Nuttall, leader of the anti-EU UK Independence Party, resigned with immediate effect after the party lost support and failed to win a single seat.

Business, already struggling with the uncertainties of the two-year Brexit negotiating process, urged party leaders to work together.

The British Labour Party, led by Jeremy Corbyn, is set to gain seats following the British election, according to exit polls. "[ Labour] made a really positive offer to an electorate who is fed up with austerity, that has doubts about globalization, and the neo-liberal economic model we have had for so long", Tim Bale, Professor of Politics at Queen Mary University of London told TIME.

He also said with his impressive performance in the General Election he would now be able to attract some of the Labour Party's biggest names to the Shadow Cabinet. "May fights to remain PM", said the front page of the Daily Telegraph, while the Times of London said: "May stares into the abyss".

While her new partners, the DUP, are loud supporters of pulling out of the EU, a majority of voters in North Ireland actually voted to remain in the union previous year.
