The 8th June general election is meant to determine whether the United Kingdom will leave or remain to be part of the European Union. The outcome of the U.K General Election demonstrated the hung parliament, experts reveal what this related to the Brexit negotiations, with the Prime Minister Theresa May losing her parliamentary majority. The director of the Brussels-based Bruegel think tank, Mr. Guntram Wolff, emphasize that the results could frustrate the talks with Brussel making them be more complicated. When interviewed with CNB, he further added that it would not be possible to compromise as the result of the domestic political pressure that is experienced in the UK, therefore, it is more likely that no-deal scenario will emerge.

The results of the general election was a big blow and a humiliating setback to Theresa May in her ambition to take part in the Brexit negotiation raising critics on her position as well as the anticipated; separation of the UK from the EU; this appears to be much chaotic. When calling for a surprising election, May assertions were that it was all about Brexit. Everyone was sure that her Conservative Party will overwhelm the Labour; he aspired to have a dominant capacity of the majority in the parliament. She wanted the voter to back her support for the Brexit negotiation; she said, "Every single vote for me strengthens my hand in the negotiations for Brexit." The results of the elections revealed that her desire to invigorate parliamentary majority against the Labour Party did not go through.

Nearly a dozen seats were lost by the Conservatives during the election, and now the nearest options are to rely on the lawmakers from an extreme-conservative minor party to restore their power. Therefore, this means that the elections result already debilitate Mays position following the 8th June general election hence complicating the already impermeable process to exit EU. The UK seems to be ungovernable after the election, which will possibly have frustrated the Brexit negotiation. Then, the PM will, therefore, be forced to form a government. In British, it was a tradition for the ruling party to win more than a half of the lawmaker, therefore, the have fair chances against their opponents when it comes to passing the legislations on their favor and blocking those of their opposition. As the result of failing to win the election, May admits that there was a need for forming the government and enroll support from the Democratic Unionist Party of Northern Ireland. Although, this won't come that easy, considering the fact that is not guaranteed that the Parliament will approve that, considering the fact that many of lawmakers are not pleased with the results.

Forming the government will not be the end of it all, because, May will be expected to propose a list of laws, formally referred to as the Queens Speech, which will be followed by the lawmakers voting. All this will be much risky, considering the fact that, if the lawmakers reject it, then the opposition, (Labour Party) will be granted the opportunity to form the government, and in case they fail, there will be no other path to take other than another election. At this point, one would ask, Is Brexit still on?" Even if May will manage in forming the government, still, her devitalize position would possibly have a solid effect in the Brexit negotiation.
