Voters will go to the polls in Britain today to decide whether Theresa May’s Conservative party will remain in office for the next five years.

The Prime Minister called the snap General Election back in April saying the country needed certainty, stability and strong leadership following the EU referendum.

Yesterday Michael Dunkley said that the Bermuda Government would continue to work with whichever party came out on top.

“The UK elections are being closely watched by the entire world, including Britain’s Overseas Territories,” the Premier said.

“Bermuda certainly prides itself on having a strong relationship with both Houses of Parliament and will continue to engage with elected members of Parliament.

“We are confident that through this engagement we will continue our joint partnership with the UK Government, whether it is a Tory majority or Labour majority.

“Both leading parties have given an undertaking to continue its relationship with Britain’s Overseas Territories.”
