Conservatives to Hold Government in UK

Conservatives win in a hung parliament at 318 seats, just 8 seats short of the 326 seats needed to secure a majority in Parliament. With the Liberal Democrats refusing to build a coalition, the Conservatives decided to build a smaller coalition with the Democratic Unionist Party based out of Northern Ireland, pushing over the majority threshold with 10 seats to a final count of 328. After a meeting with Queen, Theresa May, head of the Conservatives, was granted permission to form this coalition government, and is to remain Prime Minister of The United Kingdom.
