Steve Crowther, who is standing in as Ukip leader following Paul Nuttall's resignation, said an end to freedom of movement must be secured in the Brexit talks.
The moves buy May a temporary reprieve. At that point, polls predicted she would massively increase the slim majority she had inherited from Cameron.
Amid reports senior Tories were sounding out potential replacements for Mrs May, prominent Conservative MP Heidi Allen said the Prime Minister had six months at most left in Downing Street.
Mrs May was working on a Cabinet reshuffle, although the election result makes it less likely she will risk alienating colleagues by making wholesale changes as she can not afford to have disgruntled former ministers sniping at her from the backbenches.
The Prime Minister was forced to perform an unprecedented U-turn within days of the publication of the Tory manifesto by announcing there would be a cap on social care costs, something that had been absent in the original policy document. May's party won 318 seats, eight short of the 326 they needed for an outright majority. The party's opposition to abortion and same-sex marriage places it at odds with modernizing Conservatives. They're hardly going to make any major concessions, and she's going to have to go back to her Parliament with her divided party and try and get some obvious compromises through.
"It is likely that this new government will nurture and possibly even strengthen UK-Israeli relations", she said.
"I think it's pretty clear who won this election".
"It was a disaster", he said.
British Prime Minister Theresa May's disastrous political gamble in holding an early election has thrown Brexit into disarray less than a year after the country voted to leave the European Union. But, instead, support for her party declined dramatically, leaving her government far more precarious than before.
"This government will guide the country through the crucial Brexit talks ... and deliver on the will of the British people by taking the United Kingdom out of the European Union", she said after visiting Buckingham Palace to inform Queen Elizabeth II that she would try to form a new government. "May sought a mandate".
She is accountable for what has been done in the previous government.
Luke O'Neill, who voted for Labour in Kensington, said he felt Mr Corbyn had motivated young people.
Dr. Nina Musgrave, Assistant Director at the Centre for Defence Studies at King's College told CNN that under May's Conservative-DUP alliance, she doesn't see a big change coming in matters of the Middle East, but pointed to the DUP's support for the Israeli state.
The DUP was founded in the 1970s by the late firebrand preacher Ian Paisley, and in the 1980s was a key player in the "Save Ulster from Sodomy" campaign, which unsuccessfully fought against the legalization of gay sex. I'm very proud to lead this party. Many analysts said it was unlikely May could remain leader for long now that her authority has been eroded. "Do your best to avoid a "no deal" as result of "no negotiations".
But he told BBC's Newsnight: "I detect that there is no appetite in the party for an immediate leadership contest". "I would have thought that's enough to go, actually, and make way for a government that will be truly representative of all of the people of this country".
