Theresa May finalises cabinet amid minority government talks

Embattled British Prime Minister Theresa May began finalising her cabinet of ministers and held talks with the Democratic Unionist Party to determine the contours of the party’s support for her minority government.

Many of the key cabinet posts have already been declared as unchanged from the previous government, including Philip Hammond as Chancellor of the Exchequer, Amber Rudd as home secretary, Boris Johnson as foreign secretary.

She reportedly abandoned plans for a major reshuffle of her cabinet to keep her senior Tory party colleagues on her side. While Ms May’s top team has been left unchanged, she will have to fill gaps in her ministerial team after nine junior ministers lost their seats in what has been characterised as a disastrous election night for the ruling party.
