The people of United Kingdom have woken up to a hung parliament with the Conservatives turning out as the largest party following the elections, which produced no overall winner. Almost all the results of the seats have been announced as Theresa May ended with a dozen less seats when she called the election.
Political parties other than the conservatives stood with Tories at get 319, Labour promised 261, SNP 35, and liberal democrats 12. A complete majority requires 326 seats. The British Premier stated that the country was in need of stability following the inconclusive election result.
It has also been projected that Theresa May might look for some sort of informal understanding with the Democratic Unionists, which has won 10 in Northern Ireland, and could see it support the Tories on a vote-by-vote setup.
Democratic Unionists Party Leader Arlene Foster has states the she expects some level of communication with Tories in the coming days. According to BBC, she has said that Theresa May will find it difficult to survive.
The turnout this election is 68.7%, which suggests a 2% increase compared to 2015. However, it appears that the two parties returned with Labour and Conservatives both stacking votes in a way not observed since 1990s while contributing to top 40% of the vote. On the other hand, Conservatives have stated that in case of a hung parliament, Mrs. Theresa May would have the chance to form a government just as David Cameron in 2010 as there was no clear winner at that time but party was able to have more seats, compared to their rivals.
