United Kingdom election: So what is a hung parliament?

Speaking to media outside Number 10, Ms May spoke as certainly as though her Conservative party had won an absolute majority - which it hasn't. By contrast, the pro-Brexit UK Independence Party got 12.6% of the vote but only one seat. This means that not only does her party have less seats in government than when she went into the election but Conservatives do not have enough seats to vote through new laws without being defeated by their opponents. In light of such a deeply disappointing result, Mrs.

"I am delighted to see Labour do so well".

Mr Leslie said Labour missed an "open goal" as he had "never known" a more beatable prime minister than Theresa May. But leaders of the three largest opposition parties, including Labour's second-place finisher Jeremy Corbyn, all called for her to resign.

Her minority government looks set to be propped up by the Democratic Unionists (DUP). While the main agenda of Brexit is to stop free flow of Europeans through the border into United Kingdom and to prevent Brussels from taking shots in London, this soft sightedness of Brexit would now put India in a fix.

Questions should be asked about how the party can win a majority, he added.

The talks were in line with DUP leader Arlene Foster's "commitment to explore how we might bring stability to the nation at this time of great challenge", her party said in a statement.

May is under pressure after the Conservatives lost their parliamentary majority in Thursday's election.

"The Prime Minister called the election because she wanted a mandate".

Ms May said she called the crucial general election in order to strengthen her hand in the Brexit negotiations but her party lost seats and failed to reach a majority.

The official start of Brexit negotiations are due to begin on June 19.

Britain's typically right-wing press savaged May over the election outcome, questioning whether she will be able to remain in power after a result that leaves her reliant on uniting rival factions within her party to deliver Brexit.

In another sign of the dangers facing Mrs May, Sunday papers reported that Boris Johnson was either being encouraged to make a leadership bid in an effort to oust her, or actually preparing one - a claim dismissed as "tripe" by the Foreign Secretary. Labour, the Liberal Democrats, Scottish and Welsh nationalists can come together to form a progressive alliance. "But he still doesn't have that many seats".

The British pound fell more than 2% to $1.2642 on Friday, as markets reacted to the political uncertainty of the election results.
