British Prime Minister Theresa May's future was hanging in the balance Monday as she prepared for a showdown with angry MPs from her Conservative party following its disastrous performance in last week's general election.
The prime minister is due to face MPs later Monday, where she could face demands to quit over her lacklustre campaign and decision to call the election in the first place.
May on Sunday unveiled her full cabinet, which will meet for the first time on Monday, making few changes as she vowed to cling on despite pressure to quit.
The visibly weakened premier denied she was feeling "shell-shocked" when quizzed in an interview with Sky News.
"What I'm feeling is that actually there is a job to be done and I think what the public want is to ensure that the government is getting on with that job," May said.
May's party fell eight seats short of retaining their parliamentary majority, and is currently in talks with Northern Ireland's ultra-conservative Democratic Union Party (DUP) -- which won 10 seats -- to forge an informal alliance.
