The United Kingdom held its general elections on Wednesday, the conservative party lost it’s majority resulting in a hung parliament, provided if Democratic Union party joins a coalition with the Conservatives Prime Minister Theresa May will continue as Prime Minister, if this does not happen and the opposition party gets the backing of DUP, Labour may be forming their own minority government, however, this seems unlikely.
