Standing in front of Downing Street on Friday (June 9), Theresa May confirmed that the Conservative Party planned to work with the Democratic Unionist party (DUP) in an attempt to form a majority government.
With one seat left to declare, the Conservatives won only 318 seats in the General Election held on Thursday (June 8), eight seats too few to form a majority government by itself.
Speaking outside Downing Street , Mrs May said: "We will continue to work with our friends and allies in the Democratic Unionist Party in particular.
"Our two parties have enjoyed a strong relationship over many years and this gives me the confidence to believe that we will be able to work together in the interests of the whole United Kingdom."
Although, it remains unclear how exactly the arrangement with the DUP will work, many people will be asking - who are the party who Theresa May will have to rely on and - almost certainly - will have to make certain concessions to.
Who are the DUP?
Based in Northern Ireland, the DUP are now the fifth largest party in Westminster with 10 seats - which would take the Conservatives over that crucial majority line.
The party is led by Arlene Foster, a 46-year-old former lawyer who has been in the role since December 2015.
The party supported the United Kingdom's exit from the European Union but has been widely seen to support a 'softer' Brexit because of its wish to avoid a 'hard' border with the Republic of Ireland.
In terms of its wishlist for government, the party's manifesto said the DUP wanted to: "Prioritise spending on our Health Service, create more jobs and increase incomes, protect family budgets, raise standards in education for everyone and invest in infrastructure."
However, the party does have a strong stance on a range of controversial issues that could prove very divisive.
For example, it is anti-abortion, opposed to gay marriage and some of its MPs have shown a sceptical attitude towards climate change and called for the return of the death penalty.
Furthermore, the party's manifesto shows clear divisions with some of the Conservatives' pledges, including a wish to remain the triple lock for pensions and keep the winter fuel allowance unchanged.
So what does this all mean? It's difficult to say at this early stage but it looks like Theresa May is certainly not in for an easy ride.
