In a stunning turn of events, the results of the June 23 election in the United Kingdom have been announced.
This is a historic day for Britain as the country finally enters a period of normalcy and stability following the Brexit referendum result in June.
With the Brexit result, the UK has entered a new phase of democracy.
In Britain, the first two parliaments since the end of the Second World War, the House of Commons has now been returned to its normal functioning capacity.
The House of Lords has returned to normal functioning in England and Wales.
And the House Commons has returned the powers of Parliament to the people.
As the Prime Minister, I will now make a number of announcements, and I would like to thank all the people who took part in the elections and the people of this country for their support.
Today, we are in a period in which we can start to build on the progress that has been made in this country in recent years.
There is now more confidence than ever before, with the economy growing at a much faster rate than at any time since the Second War.
But this has been accompanied by a significant increase in crime, and the number of people living in extreme poverty has increased dramatically.
We have seen the rise of gangs, with gangs being involved in over one-third of all crime in the UK.
These gangs are becoming more violent and are becoming the problem we have all been warning about.
So the Prime Minster, I would also like to take this opportunity to say that we will be tackling these issues head on, as I said before, but we must be bold.
I have announced that the Police and Crime Commissioner will lead the Police Service of England and Scotland, which will be led by a new Commissioner, Mark Rowley.
Rowley will be a leader who will take the Police forward in their fight against crime, gangs, drugs and terrorism.
Our focus will be on tackling the serious crime of organised crime.
It will include the prevention of child exploitation and serious violence against women, children and men, and all those who are vulnerable.
Many of these crimes are connected to drugs and are often connected to gangs.
At the same time, we have seen a huge rise in the number and diversity of new forms of crime that are emerging.
From car thefts to arson, and violent crime and assault, our police are tackling these crimes.
My first major initiative will be to create new powers for the Home Office to tackle gangs.
That will mean the Home Secretary will have the power to make changes to the way the police deal with gangs, such as through the creation of new task forces.
Now, we know that the police are under great pressure from all sides, but I believe that we are moving in the right direction.
To do this, we will have to work with all parts of society, particularly the young people who are most at risk of being a victim of gangs.
We will also have to tackle the drugs and other crime that is coming to our cities, which is a big challenge.
Some of these new powers will be used in conjunction with existing powers to increase resources for the police, and make it easier for the Police to act in the face of gangs and crime.
We are also creating new powers that will help us to combat extremism, which I will talk about in more detail later in this speech.
What we are announcing today is not just a new government, but a new partnership between us and the Government, which means we can do more together to protect our communities, to keep the communities safe and to make sure we are giving them the resources they need to keep our economy going.
That is why today, I am announcing a package of reforms which will give us the tools to tackle this new challenge, and we are determined to do everything we can to deliver on the promises made to the British people.
