Boris Johnson denies plot to topple UK PM Theresa May

Thursday's election returned the surprise result of a hung parliament in which no party could form a majority.

Who will be prime minister? Conducted for a consortium of United Kingdom broadcasters by interviewing voters leaving polling stations, it is regarded as a directional, but not exact, indicator of the result. The party said Saturday that Nick Timothy and Fiona Hill have quit.

Labour won 262 seats in the General Election, up from the 232 secured by Ed Miliband in 2015, but the Conservatives remain the largest party in Parliament.

The Conservatives won 318 House of Commons seats in Thursday's election, eight short of an outright majority. But, instead, support for her party declined dramatically, leaving her government far more precarious than before. Relying on Democratic Unionist support is therefore likely to mean that May will have to go for a softer Brexit, retaining closer links with Europe.

Defence Secretary Michael Fallon, one of May's most loyal supporters, said he disagreed with Osborne's description of her as a "dead woman walking" and he expected Conservative lawmakers to rally behind her. It was founded in 1971 by Ian Paisley.

British Prime Minister Theresa May will be forced to seek the support of a regional party in order to continue governing, after the general election she called backfired dramatically.

"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", a grim-faced May said after winning her own parliamentary seat of Maidenhead, near London.

"I could not care less what people get up to in terms of their sexuality". I think she will have to go unfortunately. "When it becomes a matter for me is when people try to redefine marriage". Their priority will be to get the best deal for Northern Ireland.

Davidson, one of the few Conservatives to emerge as a victor from the election after she increased the party's presence in Scotland, said she had demanded, and received, "categoric assurance" from May that the policy would not change.

May called the early election in hopes of getting an increased majority that could have strengthened her hand in Britain's exit talks with the European Union, with negotiations beginning in 10 days, but she saw her majority evaporate completely. Negotiations with European officials had been set to begin on June 19.

The U.K.is facing a hung Parliament and May has resisted calls to resign, after her Tories lost 12 seats and the rival Labour Party picked up 29, with one regional election still not final.

"The prime minister has spoken with me this morning and we will enter discussions with the Conservatives to explore how it may be possible to bring stability to our nation at this time of great challenge", Democratic Unionist Party leader Arlene Foster told reporters. "It's just how long she's going to remain on death row".

"From hubris to humiliation", said the left-leaning Guardian, while the Times headline read: "May stares into the abyss".
