Theresa May, British prime minister and leader of the Conservative Party, is fighting to save her political career after Thursday's election setback.

May addressed the nation on Friday, saying she has struck a deal with the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) to form a minority government.

She said what the UK needs now more than ever is stability, and not division.

Despite May's insistence to go forward, the leader of the Scottish Nationalist Party, Nicola Sturgeon, said it is time for the prime minister to move on.

Sturgeon said May has lost all "authority and credibility" and accused the ruling conservatives were "reckless".

So, did May's call for snap elections backfire?
