British Prime Minister Theresa May has said her ruling Conservative Party will form a minority government with support from Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party, after losing the majority in Thursday’s snap election.
May will form a government with her 318 MPs with the support of 10 MPs from the Democratic Unionists.
May received the green light to continue as prime minister of the new government after a brief meeting with the queen Friday afternoon.
May said she will form a “government that will provide certainty”, and reaffirmed her commitment to leaving the European Union, in a short statement in front of 10 Downing Street.
She pledged to build a country in which no one is left behind.
“What the country needs more than anything is certainty. Only the Conservative and Unionist party can provide this,” she said.
“Now let’s get to work,” she said.
