Theresa May says will form new govt that will lead Britain through Brexit talks

British Prime Minister Theresa May will form a government supported by a conservative small party Northern Ireland after its party lost its parliamentary majority in an electoral debacle before negotiations over the departure of British England will begin.

A stone-faced May, speaking at the door of his official residence on Downing Street said that the government would provide certainty and would lead Great Britain in talks with the European Union to achieve a fruitful Brexit agreement.

May said he could count on Parliament with the support of his “friends” in the Democratic Union Party in Northern Ireland after his conservative government have not emerged as clear winners.

He hoped for a landslide victory, May had called for immediate elections to strengthen his hand in European Union divorce talks. But on one of the most glorious nights of British electoral history, a Party of Labor resurgence denied him an absolute victory, throwing the country into political chaos. Leaders expressed fears that the loss may affect Brexit’s majority delaying negotiations, as of June 19 and thus increases the risk of failure of negotiations.

His rival union Jeremy Corbyn, once destroyed by his opponents as a non-hopper, said May should resign and wanted to form a minority government.

But from May, he faces a scorn for running a poor campaign, was determined to hold on. Shortly after noon, she has traveled the short distance to Downing Street to Buckingham Palace to ask the Queen Elizabeth permission to form a government – a formality under the British system.

With 649 out of 650 declared seats, the Conservatives won 318 seats and 261 workers, followed by the Scottish National Party in favor of independence 34.

The shock result pushed the right and central DUP Northern Ireland to the role of kings maker, with its 10 seats enough to give the Conservatives a fragile but feasible alliance.

“Our two sides have had a close relationship for many years and give me confidence to believe we will be able to work together in the interest of the UK as a whole,” May said.

This will likely imply a provision in which the DUP would support a conservative minority government on key voting in parliament, but would not form a formal coalition.

However, with the complex debates about the EU’s divorce will begin in 10 days, we do not know exactly what its direction will be and if the so-called “hard Brexit” taking Great Britain out of the single market could still be prosecuted.

After winning his seat in North London, Corbyn said the May attempt to win a broader term had failed.

“The mandate is that they lost conservative seats, lose votes, lose support and loss of confidence,” he said. “I would have thought it was enough for all, in fact, and give way to a government that is truly representative of all the people of this country.”

“We need a government that can act,” said EU Budget Commissioner Guenther Oettinger, the German Deutschlandfunk radio station. “With a weak trading partner, there is a risk that the negotiations (Brexit) go wrong for both parties.”

The EU’s chief negotiator said the block’s position at Brexit and the timing of the talks were clear, but divorce negotiations should begin when Britain is ready. “Let’s get closer to an agreement,” said Michel Barnier.

Presidential election: CPI says it asked BJP team about Bhagwat, reply, ‘RSS doesn’t contest’

Reddy said he asked about Shiv Sena’s proposal to have RSS boss Mohan Bhagwat be the president. “They said that RSS leaders do not contest the election,” Reddy said. As they held their letters close to his chest, the only signal the ministers gave was that the ruling party would decide its candidate by mid-next week and return to the Opposition once again seeking their support. The Opposition, which does not have a unanimous opinion on the three names it is considering, called the ruling party’s consultations on how to only go through the motions.

While the Congress is said to be interested in former Speaker Lok Sabha Meira Kumar, the Left, Congress-Trinamool, and Nitish Kumar are said to be supporting Gopal Krishna Gandhi. Adding an element of discomfort is JD (U) leader Sharad Yadav “personal offer” to become the common opposition candidate. Yechury met with Gandhi on Thursday in an attempt to resolve the differences. Sources said that Gandhi told Yechury that the Opposition should put a united front.
During the day, Naidu met the leader of AIADMK, M Thambidurai. Singh spoke to Mayawati on the phone. “We expected the BJP leaders to come up with names – one or more than one – so that Congress and other opposition parties could think and discuss those names. (Instead, they tried to ask us about our names), “said the Leader of the Opposition in Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad. Azad and Mallikarjun Kharge met with ministers along with Gandhi in his 10-year residence, Janpath.
Rajnath and Naidu told leaders that the BJP has not decided on its nominee but asked whether opposition parties have any name in mind. Without words, Yechury told the ministers that by prohibiting the election of Neelam Sanjiv Reddy after the Emergency in 1977, there has always been a contest for the office of President.
“So this is a political contest.” The last time against Pranab Mukherjee, BJP pitched PA Sangma. Against Pratibha Patil, the BJP placed Bhairon Singh Shekhawat, therefore they have been organizing (candidates) as a political contest, Told reporters. All opposition leaders said that the question of cooperation and support will only arise when the ruling party reveals a name.
“They are looking for cooperation, and what I can guess … they are just looking for cooperation because they already have something in mind, which is why they have not given names,” Kharge said. He said that if the government had revealed their names, Congress could also have proposed some.

Gulf crisis: Qatar slams Saudi Arabia, allies’ terrorism list as ‘baseless’

Qatar rejected a blacklist of terrorism published by Saudi Arabia and its allies that linked people and organizations in Doha to support militant Islamist groups on Friday.

The emirate responded just hours after Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Bahrain have published a list of 59 individuals and entities linked to “terrorism.”

“The recent joint statement issued by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates on a” terrorist financing watch list “reinforces baseless allegations, since they have no basis in reality” said The government of Qatar in a statement.

Qatar is not compatible with terrorist groups, he says, noting that “our position on the fight against terrorism is stronger than many signatories of the joint statement – a fact that has been conveniently ignored by the perpetrators.” Included in the list were Doha spiritual leader Yusuf al-Qaradawi and charities funded by Qatar.

The list and response, in addition to diplomatic and political tensions in the Gulf that have erupted since Saudi Arabia and its allies have broken relations with Qatar over its alleged support for extremism.

Qatar twenty-one denied the allegations and Thursday’s foreign minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani said his country “did not surrender.”

James Comey testimony:The G-Men Take On the Don

There was an audible gasp in the courtroom in charge of the US Senate Intelligence Committee when former FBI Director James Comey accused President Donald Trump of saying “lies, plans and simple.” The agent of the principal law authority of the country had called Run a primary provider of false values. And he said more than once. The question of Russia’s interference in the last US presidential election. Is now almost a moot point. With Comey’s testimony, Washington now descends into a battle for the future of Trump’s presidency. The fight will take place on several levels.

One of them is politics. Comey can say what he wants against Trump, but ultimately, only the US Congress decides the legal destiny of a practicing US president. In a legislature dominated by members of the Republican Party of Trump, members of Congress act only when the weight of public opinion is largely against them. Comey’s testimony is damaging, but not enough to destroy 30% of the voters who remain at the head of Trump. In ABC / Washington Post polls ahead of testimony, 71% of Republicans said the president had the right to fire the FBI director. But this poll, another Senate investigation and a criminal investigation of a former FBI student, special adviser to Bob Mueller, has just begun and may take months or even years to complete. By-pass sources say that the results of next year’s midterm elections will be the real determinant of whether Congress decides to contemplate the word “I”: the indictment.

No Republican senator was willing to question Comey’s credibility or integrity. Many seem to have their comments at face value. Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan seemed to admit that Trump lied was limited to saying, “The president is new to this. He is new to the government.” The Republican National Committee was more supportive, calling the Comey statement “a Last minute attempt “to” save face “.

Another level is legal. The last US presidents who have been the subject of an indictment, ie Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton were less disturbed by the initial criminal charges for a lesser concealment charge. Nixon was nailed to a “obstruction to justice” claim. Clinton for perjury. There had been an expectation that Comey accuses Trump, after describing how the president was trying to block his Russian investigation of obstruction. Comey said this would happen, gave a minimal interpretation, but said that left the criminal legal part of it to Special Adviser Mueller. “I do not think it’s for me to say if the conversation I had with the president was an effort to interfere,” he said. Comey sees his investigations testimony and the Senate as preliminary to Mueller’s investigation. Their job was to put forward evidence that point people so vows that they can be called to testify on their behalf, and then let the law be passed. As Politico.com explains, “West Wing Mueller feared more of Comey.” Trump’s lawyer Marc Kasowitz publicly denied pieces of Comey testimony, including the former FBI director Trump’s claim, “I need loyalty, I expect loyalty.” This will fill out the story directly against Trump Comey If the President is required to speak under oath and is judged that the Comey version is correct, Trump is guilty of perjury -. A crime that can be brought by an accusation. In fact, Comey asked several “perjury trap.” The Twitter account of the United States president was silent during the statement, but statements like Kasowitz may again pursue him.
