Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Theresa May, has confirmed that she will form a government with the support of the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP).
As leader of the Conservative Party, the Prime Minister secured the largest number of seats and votes in the 2017 British general election, with 318 seats being won by the Tories.
The Prime Minister made this confirmation during her statement outside 10 Downing Street immediately after receiving the Queen’s validation for her government to be formed. Her Majesty the Queen gave approval to the 13th Prime Minister of her lifetime.
During her statement, the Prime Minister emphasised on “fairness and opportunity” as a major aspect of her new term in government.
She also laid emphasis on the threat of “Islamist extremism” that has rocked the UK recently with various terrorist attacks carried out by radical Muslims, partly contributed to by incompetent immigration laws.
Theresa May also focused on her commitment to securing a Brexit that will benefit the United Kingdom, which will form the focal point of her government. Thanks to this snap election, the Brexit process will be overseen by one government from start to finish, which would not have occurred had this election not have taken place.
The Euroskeptic DUP will now support the Conservative Party in it’s new government. Here at the Unshackled, we would like to congratulate the Prime Minister on her victory, and hope she will conduct her duties with passion, strength and conviction.
