A look at what a hung Parliament means for Britain

Opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, a socialist anti-war campaigner who only commands the confidence of a quarter of his own lawmakers, has run an energetic campaign, promising change and an end to austerity.

The BBC reported, however, that May did not plan to resign. Before the election the Conservatives had 330 seats and Labour 229. They are downbeat on the upcoming negotiations, arguing that "a Conservative government without a parliamentary majority could encounter greater difficulty in making the necessary concessions to the EU-27 that we believe will be necessary to secure a transitional deal that avoids any "cliff edge" in March 2019". The ruling party now has 330 seats in parliament.

With talks of unprecedented complexity on Britain's departure from the European Union due to start in just 10 days' time, it was unclear who would form the next government and what the fundamental direction of Brexit would be. Any party wanting to form a government needs to see if it can assemble the votes it needs to get its programme of proposed new laws passed in the Queen's Speech which marks the opening of Parliament, scheduled for June 19. "If, as the indications have shown, the Conservative Party has won the most seats and probably the most votes then it will be incumbent on us to ensure that we have that period of stability and that is exactly what we will do". Politics has changed, and politics isn't going back into the box that it was before. She should "go ... and make way for a government that is truly representative of all the people of this country", he said.

From the EU's perspective, the upset in London meant a possible delay in the start of the talks and an increased risk that negotiations would fail.

That Conservative tally means the Tories have not only failed to build on their parliamentary majority, as May wanted to do, but they have lost their grip on government. "We need a government that can act", said Oettinger. Conservative MP Anna Soubry has described the election results as "dreadful" and a "disaster", questioning whether Prime Minister May should remain as leader.

RBI keeps key interest rate unchanged, cuts inflation projections
A government adviser argued strongly for rate cuts, saying the economy, which is growing more slowly than expected, needed them. The Twelve economists polled by the Business Standard ruled out a rate cut by the central bank'.

May, who went into the election with a reputation for quiet competence, was criticized for a lackluster campaigning style and for a plan to force elderly people to pay more for their care, a proposal her opponents dubbed the "dementia tax". However, her political strategy in recent months has alienated numerous parties she would have to rely on for parliamentary votes.

May had promised a "hard Brexit" if Britain did not like the terms of the divorce negotiated with the EU.

May was fighting to hold on to her job on Friday as British voters dealt her a punishing blow, denying her the stronger mandate she had sought to conduct Brexit talks and instead weakening her party's grip on power.

Then, attacks in Manchester and London that killed a total of 30 people brought the campaign to a halt - twice, sent a wave of anxiety through Britain and forced May to defend the government's record on fighting terrorism.

She also faced pressure to quit from inside and outside her party after a troubled campaign overshadowed by two terror attacks, although British media quoted party sources saying she had "no intention" of doing so.

"I'm also very grateful to all of my family and to my wife Laura, and to all the people that have worked so hard in our team at Labour Party head office, as well as in the constituency office here for achieving this incredible result tonight in Islington and the results that are coming in from all over the country".

The conservative president, who faces a separate, potentially devastating corruption probe, says the court will absolve him. The defense of President Michel Temer states that the PMDB election campaign has no relation to suspicious activities.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said his party was "ready to serve this country". Former UK Independence Party (Ukip) leader Nigel Farage has voiced alarm that the process is "in jeopardy".

Labour also retained several seats such as Halifax and Wakefield that had been Conservative targets. The pound lost more than 3 cents against the dollar.

The pro-Brexit UK Independence Party vote collapsed, leaving the party with no seats, so the only real option for the Conservatives is to work with Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party (DUP).

Labour looks set to make gains of 33 seats with the Tories losing 15 - and the Scottish National Party (SNP) down by 22 seats in a bad night for Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, with her party losing seats to the Tories, Labour and Liberal Democrats who have won 12 seats, up four from their last election tally.

For Tim Farron's Liberal Democrats the night was a bit of a mixed bag.
