LONDON, June 9. /TASS/. With only 17 constituencies yet to announce the outcome of the vote on Friday, the UK Conservative Party will not be able to secure an absolute majority in the Parliament, according to official results of Thursday’s elections.

Prime Minister Theresa May’s party currently has 308 mandates, and needs 18 more for an absolute majority.

Final election results are expected by Friday lunchtime.

May and three key members of the ruling Conservative government have retained their parliamentary seats following the official announcement of results in their constituencies on Friday.

More than 37,000 voters supported May in her home constituency of Maidenhead.

Secretary of State for Defence Michael Fallon, Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs Boris Johnson and Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond were declared winners in their respective constituencies.

Prime Minister Theresa May - who had a small majority in the previous parliament - called an early election to try to improve her negotiation positions on Brexit.
