A petition against Prime Minister Theresa May’s decision have been signed by Britons so as to form a coalition government with the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) in Northern Ireland following her party’s loss, calling on her to step down, Travelwirenews reported.
About 300,000 people signed the petition in just 12 hours on Saturday, calling May to step down.
According to the result of the general election held on Thursday, Conservatives won 318 seats in the 650-member House of Commons and the main opposition Labour Party led by Jeremy Corbyn clinched 262 seats.
May’s party is short of the 326 it needed for an outright majority and fairly down from the 330 seats it had before the election.
In this aspect, May pointed out that she would seek to form a minority government by a “confidence and supply” agreement with the DUP.
