The snap election called by the UK Prime Minister to strengthen her hand has concluded in a hung parliament, creating some uncertainty around the near future, particularly the brewing nations brewing Brexit negotiations. You can see the results so far in the picture below, and it is not what was expected or predicted when voting concluded at 10pm last night.
Theresa May receives the news gravely that, though the Conservative Party was the largest, it failed to secure the 326 seats needed to win. On the other hand, Jeremy Corbyn, Leader of the Labour Party, gained more seats than expected and has called for Theresa May's resignation, to which she responds: "At this time more than anything else, this country needs a period of stability."
Topmost on the minds of voters are concerns over the upcoming Brexit negotiations due to start in 10 days. Doubt is raised over the possibility of a smooth process as the UK expects a matter of weeks before a final form of the next government is settled.
For now, the first thing to be considered by the Prime Minister is facing the House of Commons by June 13 and more importantly ensuring a government is formed before June 19, which is Her Majesty, the Queen's deadline. On this date, she will announce the legislative program of the new government, which may see Theresa May having to resign if she does not succeed.
