British Labor Party Members Celebrate Progress Achieved in Elections
15 June, 2017, 01:10
Britain's best-selling Sun newspaper said senior members of her party had vowed to get rid of May but would wait at least six months because they were anxious that a leadership contest now could propel Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn into power.
Labour wants to challenge the Prime Minister's authority after she was embarrassed by failing to secure a House of Commons majority in Thursday's general election.
But in one of the most sensational nights in British electoral history, a resurgent Labour Party denied her an outright win, throwing the country into political turmoil.
"And then it is up to other parties if they want to support us".

"Do your best to avoid a "no deal" as result of "no negotiations".
"We were waiting for the election in Britain, but in the next few days these talks will begin".
But EU budget commissioner Guenther Oettinger said May was now likely to be a "weak" partner. A "soft" Brexit would remove Britain as a member of the European Union, but permit it to remain in the single market. "Whoever it is, they are going to have to make deals with other political parties, and nearly every other political party that has an MP in the new parliament wants a softer version of Brexit", says French. Other Conservatives have emphasized the importance of migration controls, something the European Union says is incompatible with open trade.
"That would prevent another election, because I think people have had enough of elections".
This loss is particularly embarrassing for May because she called for the elections three years sooner than required.
Nevertheless, May's miscalculation has benefited her rival, Corbyn, the most.
Some youths may also have taken revenge on their parents and grandparents for supporting Brexit - support for leaving the European Union was much higher among older generations in the referendum a year ago on whether Britain should leave the EU.
