In the United Kingdom published the final results of the elections

After visiting Queen Elizabeth II on Friday, a part of electoral procedure, May announced she would try to form a minority government supported by the Democratic Unionist Party, or DUP, from Northern Ireland.

The U.K. national election ended early this morning with no party claiming an outright majority of seats.

The DUP is opposed to both abortion and same-sex marriage.

Labour has also demanded her resignation, with its leader Jeremy Corbyn saying Mrs.

The Queen's Speech setting out the Government's programme is due on June 19, with a highly significant vote on its content expected after a few days' debate.

"We put forward our policies - strong and hopeful policies - and they've gained an awesome response and traction", he said.

"My phone is full of texts from lots and lots of people from right across the party", he said. A "soft" Brexit, by which the United Kingdom gets to stay in the single market and European Union citizens can remain in the United Kingdom, now seems more likely but that will require a great deal of horse-trading. If her government doesn't last the negotiations, which is likely, it would push further chaos as the time limit of the negotiations would be getting shorter and shorter as more mess is created by May. But Britain's Saturday newspapers agreed she is just clinging on.

The election result thrust Northern Ireland's centre-right Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) into the role of kingmaker, with its 10 seats enough to give the Conservatives a fragile but workable partnership.

The right-wing British press speculated Sunday that Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, a former journalist and the former Mayor of London, was plotting a leadership coup. And maybe - I was speaking to one minister today who said effectively, Brexit is a dead duck.

The new arithmetic of the House of Commons will also makes Brexit negotiations more hard.

While the DUP campaigned to leave the European Union in last year's referendum, it has refused to endorse Mrs May's position that "no deal is better than a bad deal" - insisting that there must be no return of the "hard border" with the Republic.

But the Protestant DUP was founded to defend Northern Ireland's place in Britain against demands by Catholic republicans for a united Ireland.

May spoke to the Irish Taoiseach (Prime Minister) Enda Kenny over the phone on Sunday.

"She is putting that at risk with a sordid, dangerous, distasteful deal". Other members of the party have criticized Mrs.

Mays Conservative Party lost its parliamentary majority in Thursdays elections, which resulted in a so-called “hung” Parliament, meaning no party had surpassed the 326-seat threshold required for a governing majority. Conservative MPs are publicly airing their anger, some calling for her ouster and others demanding radical change in her style of leadership.

The exact contours of a potential Conservative-DUP deal were not yet known.

It was suspended in January when Sinn Fein withdrew from the agreement and said it would refuse to work with the DUP while First Minister Arlene Foster remained in her post.

"It's an issue very close to my heart and one that I wanted categoric assurances from the Prime Minister on, and I received [them]". It was a part of the neoliberal consensus, the "third way" approach of triangulation that had come to dominate the political spectrum, essentially: trust in unfettered free-market capitalism, but throw in some small, lukewarm measures meant to mitigate its ravaging effects on the public. And I think pretty much everyone thinks it is only a matter of time before she either resigns or is forced out by her own party.

"I don't think throwing us into a leadership battle at this moment in time, when we are about to launch into these hard negotiations, would be in the best interests of the country", Evans said.

May's new chief of staff will be Gavin Barwell, a former MP who was ousted from his south London constituency as a result of Labour's unexpectedly strong showing in the election.
