LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May does not plan to resign after losing her parliamentary majority in a snap election she had called in pursuit of a stronger mandate for Brexit talks, the BBC’s political editor said on Friday.

“Theresa May has no intention of announcing her resignation later today,” Laura Kuenssberg told BBC radio, adding, however: “It’s not clear to me whether they’re trying to kill the rumours off before she truly makes her mind up.”
