Theresa May is still Prime Minister, the Conservatives did "win" the election, and May has the permission of the Queen to form a government, whether that will be a minority government or a coalition government.
Some lawmakers, particularly those from the Scottish National Party, are urging cross-party discussions to reach a consensus on Britain's exit from the EU.
The turmoil started when May chose to hold snap elections to gain more seats for her party, which already had majority in parliament, to strengthen her position in the upcoming Brexit talks scheduled for June 19. In March 2007, the DUP entered a power-sharing agreement with Sinn Fein, leading the devolved government at Stormont until earlier this year, and remaining the largest party after the last assembly elections in March.
"Obviously until we have that we can't agree the final details of the Queen's Speech", said May's deputy Damian Green, referring to a an agreement with the DUP.
On Monday, she faced members of the Conservatives' 1922 Committee, which can trigger a vote of confidence in a party leader if it receives letters from 15 percent of the party's MPs.
Theresa May has reportedly promised to get the Tories "out of the mess she created".
Davis suggested the government would focus on the divorce proceedings before moving on to trade.
Weeks away from starting Brexit negotiations - though at this point it may not happen anytime soon - let alone facing growing terrorism threats, the country is more divided now than it has been for a very long time. "Now is the time for delivery, and Theresa May is the right person to continue that vital work". But after Britain's shock election result on June 9, in which the Conservatives lost their parliamentary majority, that looks increasingly unrealistic. "The door will be a lot more open now than it used to be, and that can only be a good thing".
Instead, the election stripped May of her majority and obliterated her political authority. She moved Saturday to defuse some of the anger at her leadership style and her habit of relying heavily on a small circle of advisers by parting ways with her two closest aides, Fiona Hill and Nick Timothy.More news: Kroger shares plummet after profit warning

May also restored former Justice Secretary Michael Gove to the Cabinet in another move created to show she was willing to listen to critics.
Brexit negotiations were scheduled to start in earnest next Monday. Gove, who was dismissed when May became prime minister previous year, will now serve as environment secretary.
Brexit Secretary David Davis revealed that discussions on the terms of the UK's exit package from the European Union might have to be postponed from the scheduled start date of 19 June to allow more time for the Government to prepare. The divorce issues include the rights of European Union citizens in Britain as well as United Kingdom citizens in the European Union, how much Britain will have to pay to cover previous spending commitments and the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
Mrs May also assured MPs that the DUP would not have any sway over policy on LGBT rights and any "confidence and supply" deal with them would not have any effect on talks aiming to restore the powersharing Northern Ireland government, the MP said.
European Union officials said they were ready to talk now and handed Robbins texts of their position on two priority issues - rights for European Union citizens in Britain and London's financial obligations on departure.
Talks had been expected to begin on June 19. "This isn't just going to be a Tory Brexit, this is going to have to involve the whole country". "May would not have countenanced previously, and which would be positive".
"Our resolve is to see these institutions put in place on the basis they were founded upon as quickly as possible". Although Mr Adams repeated that Ms Foster should stand aside as first minister in any new Northern Ireland Executive, pending the outcome of the inquiry into the Renewable Heat Incentive - or cash-for-ash - scheme, he also appeared to hint that there could be room for manoeuvre on the matter in the current talks.
"You could argue that with the government in minority now, its leadership credibility shot to pieces, there's nearly a higher probability of no deal", the executive said.
