Beleaguered British PM May appoints new ministers

For instance, Menon said, some pro-EU Conservative legislators may wait until the Brexit legislative program comes to Parliament to start attacking it.

May's two top aides, Nick Timothy and Fiona Hill, announced they had quit on Saturday, following sustained criticism of the campaign within the party. The Labor Party believes that her coalition of convenience with Northern Ireland's DUP is unsustainable and that there will be a new general election in the not-too-distant future.

UKIP: A big goose egg for the UK Independence Party - the nationalist movement that favored an exit from the European Union.

Voters are choosing all 650 members of the House of Commons after May called a snap election, three years ahead of schedule, at a time when her party was well ahead in the polls. "At this moment I don't see any obstacle for us carrying out the negotiations as they have been planned", she later added.

But in United Kingdom elections this result does not automatically trigger another election.

The PM called the election in the hope of achieving a solid majority to strengthen her position in the Brexit negotiations, but the results were disastrous, leaving her clinging on to power. So, this election shows there are many people in Britain that would prefer a softer Brexit. And maybe - I was speaking to one minister today who said effectively, Brexit is a dead duck.

His calls for increased spending on the National Health Service, schools and police, as well as the nationalization of railroads and utilities, have proven popular - but it would take a huge swing in voter support for Labour to unseat the Conservative government.

However, if she is still unable to get the support of a majority of the parliament members, she will then have to resign and the Labour Party, by virtue of being the second-largest party in the Parliament will try to form its own government.

The departure couldn't officially go into effect until November 2020, but Trump said he would cease implementation efforts immediately.

Now that Mrs May has reclaimed the prime ministership, however tenuously, the question becomes: what can she do with her limited mandate? "You will have a very fractious parliament".

Ballot boxes are emptied to be counted for the general election in Glasgow, Scotland.

Party insiders are placing bets on how long May will last, less than a year after Britain's surprise referendum decision propelled her into Downing Street.

The Sun, Britain's biggest-selling newspaper, simply said "Mayhem" on its front page. Its cartoon depicted May in a coffin with her feet sticking out and a speech bubble saying "Nothing has changed", a line she repeated several times as she reversed a key policy on social care during the campaign.

The Guardian, which backed Labour, said May and the Conservatives had gone from "hubris to humiliation" during the election campaign. But the uncertain outcome is more evidence that after the populist surges that produced Brexit and President Donald Trump - and the centrist fightbacks led by Germany's Angela Merkel and France's Emmanuel Macron - politics remains volatile and unpredictable.

Chancellor Philip Hammond, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, Home Secretary Amber Rudd, Defence Secretary Michael Fallon and Brexit Secretary David Davis have all been kept on in their roles.

Brexit talks with European Union negotiators are scheduled to begin in 10 days. Instead, the party with the largest number of seats in this case, it looks like the Conservatives will attempt to form a coalition government with one of the smaller parties.The British parliamentary term for this outcome is a hung parliament.
