Britain’s Theresa May reaches ‘outline’ power deal after election fiasco
British Prime Minister Theresa May reached an “outline agreement” with the ultra-conservative Democratic Unionist Party in order to be able to govern after a humiliating election that has left her authority in tatters.
May’s Conservatives lost their parliamentary majority in Thursday’s vote and need the support of the 10 MPs from Northern Ireland’s DUP to have a majority.
“We can confirm that the Democratic Unionist Party have agreed to the principles of an outline agreement to support the Conservative government,” a spokesman for May said.
The spokesman indicated this would not be a formal coalition but a minority government with looser DUP support on a “confidence and supply basis”.
The details of the agreement “will be put forward for discussion and agreement” at a Cabinet meeting on Monday, a day before the new parliament meets, the spokesman said.
