Last Thursday, the country went to the polls to take part in voting for a new government, with the results released overnight. The ruling Conservative Party won 317 seat in the U.K. parliament, making it the largest political party in the lawmaking chamber. Their rivals, the Labour Party, secured 262.
However, this was less than the 325 seats required to form a majority government. One week on, the country still remains in a state of uncertainty as the Conservative Party negotiates to put a government together.
While the results have been regarded as a shock by the Conservative party, prime minister Theresa May is trying to keep hold of her position. Earlier this week, May apologized to her fellow Conservative politicians, called the 1922 committee, telling them "I'm the person who got us into this mess and I'm the one who will get us out of it," according to a Bloomberg report on Monday.
