Tories look to form government with support from DUP

11 June 2017, 07:49 | Bernice Figueroa

But to continue as prime minister, and for the Tories to form a government, the support of Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) is now vital.

2017 was the best election result ever for the fiercely pro-unionist Irish political party. "If she can't get it passed, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn will be asked to form a government - although it's unlikely he'll be able to form a "progressive alliance" given the Liberal Democrats have ruled out sharing power with anyone", Mr. Khan told Sputnik.

A very personalized, nearly presidential style of campaigning has contributed to the Conservative Party's apparent loss of support, said Mark Goodwin, lecturer at the department of political science and global studies at the University of Birmingham in England.

He says "such coalitions are usually fragile and will certainly make Brexit negotiations more difficult".

It recovered somewhat to trade at $1.2677 but remained well short of the $1.2955 level before the exit poll was published late Thursday.

"In the days and weeks ahead, it is that Union that will be to the forefront of our minds".

Meanwhile, Labour, which had been written off by critics as all but unelectable, surged to 261 seats, up 29 from its tally in the 2015 election.

Originally meant to incentivize Northern Ireland residents to switch to renewable energy sources, RHI ended in farce when the scheme paid out more than the cost of the fuel, leaving taxpayers with a bill of up to US$486 million.


She takes responsibility as she always does and I know she will - for the running of the campaign as well.

"There is no doubt that the Conservative Party failed to match the initial expectations of a convincing landslide", Matthew Goodwin, professor of politics and global relations at the University of Kent, England, told ABC News via email one day before the election. But Britain's Saturday newspapers agreed she is just clinging on.

The Times newspaper's front page declared "May stares into the abyss".

She is regarded as having performed well during the campaign, which was marred by deadly attacks in Manchester and London.

"The Conservatives have not yet broken the British system of democracy, but through their hubris and incompetence they have managed to make a mockery of it", it said in an editorial.

May's office has already said that the senior Cabinet members - Treasury chief Philip Hammond, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Home Secretary Amber Rudd - will keep their current jobs, but she is expected to reshuffle the lower ranks of ministers. The DUP said only that it would enter talks.

The move came after it was made clear that Mrs May has no intention of standing down as Conservative leader, despite calls from among her own MPs for her to consider her position.

Mrs May called the election claiming she wanted a stronger hand in the forthcoming Brexit negotiations, due to start on the same day as the Queen's Speech.
