British Prime Minister Theresa May has made no change to her top ministers including finance minister Philip Hammond and foreign secretary Boris Johnson, her office said on Friday, a day after a national election.

Interior minister Amber Rudd, defence secretary Michael Fallon and Brexit minister David Davis will also remain in their posts, Downing Street said, after the Conservative Party’s weak performance in Thursday’s national election.

“No further appointments will be made this evening,” May’s office said.

Before the election there had been widespread speculation in the British media that May would replace Hammond if she won a large majority.
