UK general election 2017

UK general election was held on June 8th, 2017. The result was shocking for Theresa May, Prime Minister of the UK.

The ruling Conservative Party lost 13 seats of Member of Parliament, whereas opposing Labor Party gained 32 seats, reaching 262. The Tory dropped from the absolute majority. It will continue to make a coalition with Democratic Unionist Party which had ten seats for keeping the majority.

May made an apology for this defeat and asked for support to her colleagues in the party.

It was May's intention to conduct a general election. Thus, the result was far from her expectation. Many people claim she should resign. But she denied the idea of dropping out.

I support her continuation despite admitting that her decision to make a vote was a failure. The UK is shaken before the Brexit and recurrent terrorism now. There are not so many politicians who can address this complicated situation.
