Moscow [Russia], June. 12 (ANI): United Kingdom (UK) Prime Minister Theresa May has said she will visit France to meet President Emmanuel Macron, in order to begin work post the snap parliamentary election. The United Kingdom held a snap general election last Thursday, which resulted in a hung parliament as the Conservatives failed to secure an overall majority in the House of Commons and fell short of the required 326 seats, reports Sputnik. Following the blow, May announced her plans on Friday to form the coalition between Tories and the DUP. However, the move faced the strong criticism of the general public with 502,446 people signing an online petition against the coalition. The fallout of the entire development was such that on Saturday hundreds of Britons came to the residence of the Prime Minister on London's Downing Street, demanding May's resignation. (ANI)
