May keeping key Cabinet members in place – KCRG

LONDON (AP) – Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May’s office says several key Cabinet members will keep their jobs following a disastrous election which left the party short of a majority in parliament.

May kept in place Treasury chief Philip Hammond; Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson; Home Secretary Amber Rudd; Defense Secretary Michael Fallon and David Davis, who is charge of negotiations to leave the European Union.

Hammond in particular had been rumored for an exit in the event of victory, but the election result limited May’s options for maneuver.

May plans to work with Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party to muster a voting majority.
