Advisers and co-leaders of the Prime Minister of Great britain Nick Timothy and Fiona Hill, who were responsible for preparing the election campaign before the parliamentary elections, resigned because of the loss of the ruling majority by the conservatives. This is reported by Reuters.

Timothy's statement

Timothy said the result of the parliamentary elections held on June 8 was "a huge disappointment" and noted that in the near future the party would analyze the course of its campaign in details to find out the reasons for the failure.

"The reason for the deplorable result of the elections was not the deficit of support for Theresa May and the Conservatives, but an unexpected wave of Labor support.

One can speculate about the reasons for this, but the simple truth is that the UK is a divided country: many people are tired of the tough economy, many are disappointed or unhappy with Brexit," Timothy said in a statement on the Conservative Home website.

He also said that he assumed the responsibility for that part of the election campaign, during which he worked for the preparation of the political program, particularly, it was about proposals on the problem of increasing the cost of social services.

Fiona's statement

Fiona Hill, in turn, said that she was pleased to work with Teresa May, and expressed confidence that the Prime Minister will remain in office, despite the results of the election.

Results of elections in Britain

Early parliamentary elections in Great Britain were held on June 8 at the initiative of the head of the government, Teresa May, who decided to dissolve the parliament in order to strengthen the parliamentary majority before the start of negotiations with Brussels on Brexit.

As a result of the elections, the Conservative Party lost its absolute majority, gaining 318 seats in the 650-seat House of Commons. The Labor Party received 262 mandates, the Scottish National Party - 35 seats. The fourth place was taken by the Liberal Democratic Party, with 12 seats. Other parties and independent candidates received 23 seats in the British parliament.

After the election, May met with Queen Elizabeth II, who announced her intention to form a coalition with the Democratic Unionist Party of Northern Ireland, which would provide the Conservative Party with a lack of seats in parliament and hold London through negotiations with Brussels on Britain's withdrawal from the EU.
