Prime Minister Theresa May will not resign following her failure to secure a Commons majority, according to Conservative sources.
Axar.az reports citing Independent.
The news follows Ms May's statement in which she said it is her party's responsibility to now try and ensure the country's stability ahead of brexit talks.
But it also comes after calls for Ms May to quit from both Labour and Tory figures, in the wake of her attempt to capitalise on historically high poll leads over Labour was torpedoed by her own lacklustre election campaign.
Her intention to stay on was confirmed as reports emerged that she could form a coalition with Northern Ireland's DUP to create a miniscule parliamentary majority.
Speaking as she was re-elected MP for Maidenhead, Ms May said: "At this time, more than anything else, this country needs a period of stability.
"If, as the indications have shown and if this is correct, the Conservative Party has won the most seats and probably the most votes, then it will be incumbent on us to ensure that we have that period of stability and that is exactly what we will do."
