Stormont: Top NI Ministers
DUP leader Arlene Foster was appointed as Northern Ireland’s first minister, while Sinn Féin’s Michelle O’Neill is deputy first minister on Saturday.
The two parties supported a deal to restore Stormont’s political institutions.
Stormont’s power-sharing coalition, led by the DUP and Sinn Féin, collapsed in January 2017.
First minister comes from the largest party in the assembly and deputy first minister is from the second-largest party.
The positions are known as a “diarchy” which means they are equal and govern together.
Deputy first minister is not subordinate to the first minister, despite the title.
