DUP leader Arlene Foster to hold talks at No10 with Theresa May

The Prime Minister's joint chiefs of staff Nick Timothy and Fiona Hill have resigned after Theresa May lost her majority in the General Election.

May expected to increase the number of her Conservative Party's seats in the parliament in order to avoid additional problems during the talks.

Downing Street backtracked, saying she had "discussed finalizing" a deal in the coming week.

When asked if she would continue her term in office May said, "I said during the election campaign that if re-elected I would intend to serve a full term".

Meanwhile the main opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said that he stands ready to lead the country and that a new general election could be held within months.

The outcome risks upsetting the political balance in Northern Ireland by aligning London more closely with the pro-British side in the divided province, and increases the chance that Britain will fall out of the European Union in 2019 without a deal.

She inherited a 17-seat majority in the Commons, but called the snap vote to take advantage of opinion polls putting her on course for a landslide.

The British pound tumbled on Friday against the USA dollar and the euro before stabilising, down 1.7 and 1.4 percent against the two currencies respectively.

May had called the vote three years early in the hope that a sweeping win would strengthen her hand in the challenging Brexit talks, which are due to start in nine days' time.

But Elmar Brok, a German conservative and the European Parliament's top Brexit expert, told the Ruhr Nachrichten newspaper that the talks would now be more complicated. Who are these people, and how likely is she to be able to form a government with their backing? And I think pretty much everyone thinks it is only a matter of time before she either resigns or is forced out by her own party.

Niblett said: "Having made Brexit the rationale for the election, she nevertheless made no effort during the campaign to explain how she would manage the negotiation or what a successful deal would look like".

"Imagine she survives until autumn of next year", he told Reuters. "It is far from guaranteed to vote the deal through".

Party insiders are placing bets on how long May will last, less than a year after Britain's surprise referendum decision propelled her into Downing Street. "The more balanced the broadcast coverage of Jeremy Corbyn, the more people would see him for the honest, decent, principled, and indeed strong leader he was". It said Britain was "effectively leaderless" and the "country all but ungovernable". Many key positions were unchanged.

In more recent times, former first minister Peter Robinson's wife Iris, then an MP, described homosexuality as an "abomination", while the MP son of Dr Paisley, Ian Paisley Jr, said he felt "repulsed" by homosexual acts.

Brexit Secretary David Davis said he would "fight tooth and nail" to keep Mrs May in post, and dismissed suggestions he might be a contender to replace her.

For instance, Menon said, some pro-EU Conservative legislators may wait until the Brexit legislative program comes to Parliament to start attacking it.

Theresa May has said she will put together a government with the support of the Democratic Unionists to guide the United Kingdom through crucial Brexit talks.

"The two leaders spoke about their willingness to continue close cooperation as the United Kingdom embarks on leaving the European Union, with no return to a hard border".

The Conservatives won 318 House of Commons seats in Thursday's election, eight short of an outright majority.

The arrangement with the DUP will make governing easier, but it makes some Conservatives uneasy.

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has denied plotting to topple Prime Minister Theresa May, who has been weakened by the Conservative Party's disastrous election result.
