British Prime Minister Theresa May went to meet Queen Elizabeth II to ask permission to form a minority government. After meeting the Queen, May said she will form a government to provide stability and lead Britain out of the EU
May said she can rely in parliament on the support of her “friends” in Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party after her ruling Conservatives failed to win a majority.
“We will continue to work with our friends and allies in the Democratic Unionist Party in particular,” she said.
May said, “Our two parties have enjoyed a strong relationship over many years and this gives me the confidence to believe that we will be able to work together in the interests of the whole United Kingdom.”
