Sanders 'Delighted' by Corbyn's Success in UK Election

Prime Minister Theresa May leaves 10 Downing Street after the election.

A defiant Prime Minister Theresa May vowed on Friday to form a government to lead Britain out of the European Union despite losing her majority in a snap general election and facing calls to resign. It now holds 318 seats.

May has said she favors a "hard" Brexit.

Now that Mrs May has reclaimed the prime ministership, however tenuously, the question becomes: what can she do with her limited mandate?

Thursday's United Kingdom general election saw the Conservatives lose more seats than expected in Parliament, while the Labour gained more seats than expected.

The UK and Irish governments are now trying to mediate between the DUP and Irish nationalists to restore the government, leading many to question how the UK will be able to continue to do so when being propped up by the DUP. Theresa May promised strong and stable leadership.

"What I think is important in the Brexit negotiations, which will start in 10 days time, is that we have the certainty of a Government that can take forward a plan into those negotiations".

But Elmar Brok, a German conservative and the EU Parliament's top Brexit expert, told the Ruhr Nachrichten newspaper the talks would now be more complicated.

Norwegian Foreign Minister Boerge Brende said the election outcome could mean a less radical split between Britain and the EU.

Anand Menon, a professor at King's College London, says it depends on several key factors.

The results - a sort of turnaround in fortunes for both major parties - have thrown that timetable into doubt. He said that he didn't believe they would.

May announced the party would try to work with Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party, an alliance that is fraught with difficulties.

She had said earlier an election was not needed, but her party's lead in opinion polls, 20 per cent in most cases, made the prospect too tempting to pass up. But now that she's politically weaker, what'll happen with the Brexit deal? I'm very proud to lead this party.

The DUP has close ties with the Conservatives, and it is in favor of the U.K.'s withdrawal from the European Union.

"We want to end austerity and invest in this country and that's what we're going to do".

"Do your best to avoid a "no deal" as result of "no negotiations", Donald Tusk, leader of the EU's ruling council, wrote in a tweet. The BBC reports that the Tories lost 12, while Labour-the party of Corbyn-gained 29. The group is pro-Brexit, but well to the right on social issues. The country would also gain full control over its borders.

To be sure, by last month, I had come around to the conventional wisdom that May's Conservatives would win.

DUP leader Arlene Foster confirmed she will enter talks with May in an effort to pursue "stability" in Parliament, without giving further details on the conditions for the partys support. That's when then-Prime Minister David Cameron resigned and was replaced by Prime Minister Theresa May.
