Conservative Party leader Theresa May will visit Buckingham Palace at 12.30pm BST on Friday to seek permission from Queen Elizabeth to form a government, British media are reporting.
With no clear winner emerging from Thursday's parliamentary election, a wounded May signaled she would fight on, despite being on course to lose her majority in the House of Commons. Her Labour rival Jeremy Corbyn said she should step down.
With almost all seats declared, it became apparent that the Conservatives were no longer able to reach the 326-mark they would need to command a parliamentary majority.
