"As a default, Theresa May would stay as PM and the Conservatives attempt to form a government, possibly supported by Northern Ireland's Unionist parties". "The party that has lost is the Conservative Party, the arguments it put forward in this election have lost".

A record number of 51 black, Asian and ethnic minority MPs have been elected to the British Parliament in the 2017 General Election that was held on Thursday.

May's Labour rival Jeremy Corbyn, once written off by his opponents as a no-hoper, said May should step down and he wanted to form a minority government. And Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron pledged during the election not to go into coalition with either the Tories or Labour.

DUP leaders said in a statement that there were "no red lines" on the topic of supporting the Conservatives in Parliament.

The new Parliament will be sworn in on 13 June, although May has until 19 June to work out the full terms of the Conservatives' agreement with the DUP.

May says it's "a Cabinet that reflects the wealth of talent and experience across the Conservative Party" and "a government that is going to be governing for everyone".
