Northern Ireland Assembly failed motion – DUP blocks NI government – watch again
Northern Ireland‘s politicians have failed in last-ditch efforts to restore devolved government ahead of a legal deadline to call an assembly election.
The parties met on Thursday but failed to elect a Speaker, or the first and deputy first ministers.
The NI secretary is set to call a poll if no executive is in place by Friday.
The Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) is blocking the restoration of power-sharing in its protest against post-Brexit trading arrangements.
Unionist politicians argue the Northern Ireland Protocol undermines Northern Ireland’s position in the UK.
It keeps Northern Ireland aligned with some EU trade rules to ensure goods can move freely across the Irish land border.
