May's Downing Street office said on Sunday she had spoken with the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), to discuss finalising a deal when parliament is reconvened next week. May had called the election to build upon her majority; instead, the party lost it. Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May is seen as being on thin ice in her bid to keep power.
He had also worked in a customer services role for Transport for London and was the sole director of a now-dissolved company called Kool Kosmetics.

Comey's almost three-hour testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee was his first chance to speak in public about the meetings and conversations he had with Trump during the months before being fired. Trump also said that Comey's testimony "vindicated" the president and that everything in it was "basically ridiculous". Asked if he had taped their conversations, Trump said he would reveal that answer soon.
The US president stunned Europe's leaders at a summit in Brussels on May 25 when he failed to publicly back the now 29-member bloc's founding mutual defense guarantee. "Because together we can confront the common security challenges facing the world", he added. Last year, only five of the 28 countries met the two percent goal: the U.S., Greece, Britain, Estonia and Poland.
Sessions had been scheduled to testify before other committees about the Justice Department's budget that day, but he will instead appear before the intelligence panel. The White House has still not said publicly whether or not the President retains confidence in his attorney general. "Our judgment, as I recall, was that he was very close and inevitably going to recuse himself for a variety of reasons", Comey said during his questioning.
In Kabul, meanwhile, the US military command said an unspecified number of Afghan police were killed and wounded in a "friendly fire" incident during a joint Afghan-US operation overnight Saturday. Although once relatively common, "green-on-blue" attacks have decreased following stricter security measures and the sharp decline in foreign troops in the country.
