UK Elections:opposition call for PM Theresa May’s resignation.

Theresa May will have to consider her position after her party failed to win majority seats.

Britain’s voters have delivered a stunning blow to Prime Minister Theresa May, wiping out her parliamentary majority and prompting calls for her to resign.

With most results declared, May’s party won the most seats — but not enough to govern without the support of minority parties.

It was devastating result for May, who had called the election three years earlier than required by law, convinced by opinion polls that placed her far ahead of opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn.
The result also plunges Britain into a period of renewed political chaos, with Brexit talks likely to be delayed and May’s personal authority shredded. There was already talk in Conservative circles that she might have to resign, less than a year after taking over from David Cameron, who stepped down following the Brexit referendum.
George Osborne, the former finance minister who stepped down at the election, told ITV that the results were “catastrophic” for his party. Anna Soubry, a Conservative MP, said May would have to consider her position.
The result appeared certain to plunge the UK into another period of political uncertainty, with formal Brexit talks due to start in 10 day’s time. The pound fell on currency markets in the wake of the results.
May had promised to deliver a “hard Brexit” if Britain did not like the terms of the divorce negotiated with the EU. She vowed to take the country out of the EU’s single market and customs union, radically changing Britain’s relationship with one of its biggest trading partners.
