Hard Brexit Thrown in Doubt as UK Voters Reject May's Strategy

Prime Minister Theresa May called the June 8 snap election in an effort to increase her party's majority in Parliament and bolster support when negotiations to leave the European Union begin June 19.

"If. the Conservative Party has won the most seats and probably the most votes, it will be incumbent on us to ensure that we have that period of stability and that is exactly what we will do".

May had sought to capitalize on Britons' desire to quit the European Union and the perceived weakness of opposition Labour Party Leader Jeremy Corbyn.

Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, Home Secretary Amber Rudd, Defence Secretary Michael Fallon and Brexit Minister David Davis will all stay in office.

British Prime Minister Theresa May was facing reports of deep disquiet in her Conservative party Saturday following an election that severely dented her parliamentary clout.

"I'm never going to give in arguing for what I believe is a pathway to a majority Labour government", he added. Prime Minister Theresa May's party fell short of an overall majority following Thursday's vote, and plans to work with Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party. The Conservative Party still has the highest number of seats, 318, but the body is now what is known as a "hung Parliament".

Britain's typically pro-Conservative press savaged May and questioned whether she could remain in power only two months after officially triggering the country's divorce from the European bloc.

Britain's opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said on Sunday there could be another election this year or early in 2018 after the vote on Thursday produced no clear victor.

May had called the election three years early in a bid to strengthen her hand in looming Brexit negotiations, but her gamble backfired spectacularly.

After noon, May was driven from her official Downing Street residence to Buckingham Palace to ask Queen Elizabeth for permission to form a government - a formality under the British system.

The spat has led to one of the worst Gulf crises in decades, with suspended flights and regional ports closed to Qatari ships. Trump said Arab leaders he met with in Saudi Arabia last month had urged him to confront Qatar over its behavior.

Instead of improving the Conservative hold on the House, she weakened it to the point that it will only take four dissidents from the coalition membership to topple the government.

After the election, the right-wing UK Independence Party, which helped drive Brexit, was left with no seats in Parliament.

Corbyn said that he still could become the United Kingdom prime minister following snap general election where the Conservative party lost parliamentary majority.

"I think her position is, in the long term, untenable", Conservative lawmaker Anna Soubry told Sky News.

The Labour MP for Nottingham East refused to say whether he thought Mr Corbyn was credible prime minister.

As for Bangladesh, is there anything we can learn from the way the campaign was conducted on both sides in the general elections in Great Britain or from the manner in which top politicians carried themselves about, and how no major parties shifted from their fundamental alliance and attempted unholy alliances just for poll-time benefits?
