Sinn Fein vice president Michelle O’Neill has once again called on the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) to resume their participation in the Stormont Assembly.


The DUP has been boycotting the devolved government for the past year, using their absence as leverage to address concerns regarding the Northern Ireland Protocol in relation to Brexit.

DUP’s Firm Stance and Plea for Unionist Cooperation

DUP leader Sir Jeffrey Donaldson recently reiterated his party’s determination to “stand firm” after the upcoming election until they secure and protect their place within the United Kingdom.

During their manifesto launch in Belfast, Donaldson also made a plea for unionist cooperation in the forthcoming council elections, emphasizing the need to unite against opponents of the union.
