May said she was confident that the Tories would be able to work together with the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) in the ‘interests of the whole UK’.
May, accompanied by her husband Philip, made the statement in Downing Street after meeting with Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace.
‘I will now form a Government – a Government that can provide certainty and lead Britain forward at this critical time for our country,’ she said.
‘This Government will guide the country through the crucial Brexit talks that begin in just ten days time.’
