First results from the UK general election largely support earlier exit polls in suggesting that Conservatives headed by the Prime minister Theresa May may lose their parliamentary majority. At the same time Labour has made sweeping gains across the country. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has called on May to resign after “she had lost her mandate”. According to predictions Conservatives will pick up 318 seats, Labour might land 262, while Scottish National Party is predicted to have 35 seats and Liberal Democrats – 15. A party needs 326 seats to form a government. If exit polls prove to be correct, the UK will be faced with a hung parliament and Conservatives will have to seek allies for a coalition.
