May seeks to rally party lawmakers behind her leadership

Theresa May has finalised her cabinet following the election

"She said: "I'm the person who got us into this mess and I'm the one who is going to get us out of it", said one Conservative lawmaker who attended Monday's meeting.

May's Conservatives unexpectedly lost their majority in parliament in Thursday's snap vote, causing political chaos ahead of Brexit talks with the European Union set to start next week and prompting calls - from within her own party - for her resignation.

Reacting to the meeting, Tory MP Julian Knight said that the prime minister had been "humble and steadfast and certain that we have to get on with the job of government and negotiating Brexit". But the deal would be delayed until next week due to the fire incident in London.

Ms Foster and the DUP's leader at Westminster, Nigel Dodds, spent nearly two hours with the prime minister at Downing Street on Tuesday morning.

The most high-profile challenger who could succeed May is Boris Johnson, the former London mayor and current foreign secretary.

After failing to achieve a majority, May is set to meet with the Democratic Unionist Party of Northern Ireland on Tuesday to cobble together a deal to ensure her minority government can get its Queen's Speech - a key annual event in which the government lays out its policy agenda for the coming year - through Parliament.

TALKS between Theresa May and the DUP failed to finalise a deal to prop up her minority government yesterday - but Arlene Foster voiced hope that it could be signed off "sooner rather than later".

"I congratulate her on returning and I'm sure she'll agree with me that democracy is a wondrous thing, and can throw up some very unexpected results", he said.

They campaigned for Brexit despite the fact that Northern Ireland has the most to lose if there is no amicable deal with the EU.

"The reason for leaving the single market is because we want to take back control of our borders, they're not compatible", he told BBC radio.

There are "no outstanding issues" in the way of a deal, the report said.

Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said May's government lacked the credibility necessary for Brexit talks and should delay the negotiations.

"We stand at a critical time with those Brexit negotiations starting only next week - I think that stability is important".

The talks with the DUP follow her apology to Conservative rank-and-file lawmakers in a meeting for the party's poor election result.

Conservative MPs who left the meeting, described her performance as "heartfelt", "powerful" and "contrite".

But "being seen to be the prime minister" could help "shore up her authority at home", according to Colin Talbot, professor of government at the University of Manchester. She has called for a closer relationship with the European Union after Brexit.

May also restored former Justice Secretary Michael Gove to the Cabinet in another move created to show she was willing to listen to critics. Labour won 262 and the Northern Irish Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) got 10 seats.

May has shown little public contrition for the electoral gamble that backfired spectacularly, but was forced to accept the resignations of her two top aides - reportedly a requirement by cabinet colleagues for allowing her to stay in office.

DUP leader Arlene Foster arrived for talks with May.

Sterling depreciated against its major currency counterparts after the elections: it fell by 1.6% versus the U.S. dollar; it went down by 1.3% against the euro and by 1.1% vis-a-vis the Japanese yen.

May and Gove had frequently clashed when both were in government, and only last week, when an interviewer asked her about him, May answered dismissively, saying, "I seem to remember Michael was secretary for state for education at one point".
