United Kingdom election: May loses might, hangs on as PM

Britain's best-selling Sun newspaper said senior members of her party had vowed to get rid of May, but would wait at least six months because they were anxious that a leadership contest now could propel Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn into power. Jeremy Corbyn, the Labor Party leader often dismissed (even by many in his own party) as an ineffectual ideologue, galvanized younger and working-class voters with an egalitarian message of "For the Many, Not the Few". But in one of the most sensational nights in British electoral history, a resurgent Labour Party denied her an outright win, throwing the country into political turmoil.

She seems secure for the immediate future, because senior Conservatives don't want to plunge the party into a damaging leadership contest. Although some results are still being counted, the final Conservative tally is expected to be 319, down from 331 in the last election in 2015.

British Prime Minister Theresa May risks losing her position to Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn following her Conservative Party's poor performance at the just concluded election.

She said: "I have wanted to achieve a large majority". The party has called for a second vote on whether Scotland should separate from the United Kingdom.

The pro-European Liberal Democrats, who have campaigned for a second European Union referendum, were projected to increase their number of seats from nine, but their former leader Nick Clegg, who was also a deputy prime minister from 2010 to 2015, lost his seat.

But despite jubilation among Mr Corbyn's supporters at bloodying Mrs May' s nose, Labour MP Chris Leslie said the party should not pretend it achieved a "famous victory". The Conservatives are forecast to win 314 seats, followed by Labour with 266 seats.
