The United Kingdom woke up to a hung parliament on Friday, as neither party managed to secure the halfway mark required to form a government.
Conservative leader and incumbent Prime Minister Theresa May, who took over from David Cameron last year, had called in an early election, hoping to accelerate talks on Britain’s exit from the European Union.
The snap polls, however, costed May the majority in the British House of Commons, as the Conservative party won 318 out of 650 seats. May later scrambled to get the Democratic Unionist Party, which won 10 seats, on her side.
