British PM Theresa May Strikes Deal with DUP to Form Minority Government
June 10 , 2017
British Prime Minister Theresa May’s gamble of early election backfired as Tory failed to secure a majority in the British Parliament. While May’s Conservative Party lost 13 seats to secure just 318 seats (falling short of the 326 seat majority mark by 8 seats), Jeremy Corbin led Labor Party gained 32 seats to bag 262 seats. Reports say that failed election campaign has jeopardized British PM Theresa May’s plans and senior Conservatives have already started contemplating of replacing her as their leader. Theresa May has been forced to strike a deal with Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) to cling on to power and form a minority government.
