United Kingdom opposition Labour Party says will seek to form minority government

Neither party is able to form a government. With 649 of the 650 seats declared, the Conservatives had won 318 seats and Labour 261.

To form a functioning government, the Prime Minister is expected to rely on the support of the Democratic Unionist Party, an ideologically similar right-wing faction from Northern Ireland, which secured 10 of the 18 parliamentary seats representing that region in the British Parliament. But a far more significant deadline is the Queen's Speech on June 19, when the sovereign will read out the legislative programme of the new government. "The date for the beginning of negotiations is now unclear", he wrote on Twitter.

"Theresa May's failure in this election was down to her personality and her policies." said Ryan Shorthouse, the director of the liberal Conservative thinktank Bright Blue. What they are saying "I'm afraid we ran a pretty terrible campaign", - *Conservative member of parliament Anna Soubry, who called on Theresa May to "consider her position".

The more the United Kingdom delays, the less time it will have available to reach a compromise agreement with the 27 other countries in the EU.

"Everybody is positioning themselves", said Anand Menon, professor of European politics and foreign affairs at Kings College London. It's hard to predict how they'll react, he says.

May is expected to form the new government after talks with the DUP next week, only days before the country's historic Brexit negotiations with the European Union start on June 19.

"I think the Conservative party as a whole is reluctant to get rid of Theresa May now because it would mean a leadership election, it would mean stalling on Brexit talks", Menon said. "So whether they can hold a weak leader in place - tactically, as it were - until they are ready to move, I don't know".

By the next morning, after he spent hours untouched after falling down a flight of stairs, Piazza "looked dead", Scicchitano said. During the night, Piazza was slapped in the face, slammed onto a couch and hit in the abdomen by fraternity members.

Discussions between the British government and the European Union are formally set to begin later this month. But we also now see a wider range of potential outcomes, including a softer Brexit in light of parliament's new makeup. The British public have in effect voted "to leave the European Union but in a way that doesn't affect their lives or their jobs or anything to do with them or their sector", he said.

"Theresa May's central claim which is no deal is better than a bad deal now becomes undeliverable because the DUP will never allow no deal". "With a weak negotiating partner, there's a danger that the negotiations will turn out badly for both sides".

At the start of the campaign, she was enjoying poll leads of 20 points or more over the main opposition Labour Party.

Above all, investors are anxious about the general uncertainty surrounding the country - whether a bruised May will resign in due course, whether the Conservatives will be able to form a new government or whether it will be an alliance of opposition parties, led by the Labour Party.

The DUP are firmly in the Brexit camp, notes Hartwig Kos, vice-CIO and co-head of multi-asset, SYZ Asset Management. The group has now lost its overall majority in Parliament.

Ruth Davidson, the leader of the Conservatives in Scotland, told the BBC she had words with May over the DUP's record on LGBT rights. "We will work with others, if it is at all possible, to keep the Tories out of government", Sturgeon said on Friday.
