Uncertainty and the risk of instability have dramatically gone up after the general elections. Theresa May’s bet has failed. She expected a triumph but she no longer have an overall majority. What are the consequences?

1 – Theresa May will stay at the 10 Downing Street for the moment and she will form a new government. The coalition with the Irish party DUP will give her the majority. DUP was a hard Brexit supporter.
The main question here is to know for how long she will have a majority. The Conservatives have 318 seats and DUP 10. The total is 328 and the overall majority is at 326. As there are 4 partial elections each year on average, then Theresa May may have a majority for two or three years if the Labour party remains strong and wins some of these partial elections. How will she manage this issue?
