In UK, the Conservatives are set to be the largest party in the British Parliament, but may not have an overall majority.
According to a media forecast, Prime Minister, Theresa May’s Conservative Party would win 318 of the 650 House of Commons seats, eight short of a majority, while the left-wing opposition Labour Party would take 267,resulting a hung parliament and potential deadlock.
As per prediction, Prime Minister May would lose her majority, scoring somewhere between 315 and 325 seats. The final election results are expected by lunchtime today.
A total of 650 Westminster MPs will be elected, with about 45.8 million people entitled to vote. A party needs 326 seats to have an overall majority.
The forecasts would be a humiliation for Prime Minister Theresa May, who chose to call the election to try to strengthen her hand in talks with the EU on Brexit. The election will largely determine the UK’s negotiation policies in upcoming negotiations with the EU on Brexit.
Meanwhile, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn urged the Prime Minister to resign, but she said her party would ensure stability in the UK.
