Britain and Ireland are pushing for a compromise in Northern Ireland
Sinn Féin’s party has won the election in Northern Ireland. However, it is unclear whether it will succeed in forming a functioning government. The British government minister in charge of Northern Ireland announced on Monday that he would be speaking with party officials.
NFollowing the victory of the Irish Republican Sinn Fin party in the election in Northern Ireland, the parties were called upon to work together. The Prime Minister of Ireland Michael Martin said that the principles of the 1998 Good Friday Agreement, which guaranteed peace and progress for 25 years, should be adhered to by all. “A new devolution government is important for progress and prosperity for all in Northern Ireland,” he said.
Sinn Fின்in won 27 of the 90 seats in the regional assembly, defeating the pro-British DUP, which won 25 seats for the first time. After the Good Friday Pact, which ended decades of conflict between Irish nationalists and British trade unionists in Northern Ireland, the strongest party qualified for the post of head of government. However, it is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.
The DUP is open on whether they will allow the UK government to repeal Northern Ireland’s protocol for the Brexit agreement. It regulates free trade between Northern Ireland and the EU Member Republic of Ireland and provides customs controls between Northern Ireland and the rest of Great Britain.
The British government is trying to change the Brexit agreement, but talks with the EU have stalled. Northern Ireland Secretary Brandon Lewis has announced that he will hold talks with party officials on Monday regarding the government in Northern Ireland.
