And Kwasi Kwarteng, both parents from Ghana, won by 57.3 percent for the Conservative.

 

Shortly after the election, Labour’s Jeremy Corbyn urged Mrs May to resign.

But the Prime Minister said: “At this time more than anything else, this country needs a period of stability.

“And if, as the indications have shown and if this is correct that the Conservative Party has won the most seats and probably the most votes, then it will be incumbent on us to ensure we have that period of stability – and that is exactly what we will do.”
