NewsNorthern Ireland Election LIVE: Brexit at risk as Sinn Fein on course for historic victory


Sinn Fein are predicted to topple the DUP as the biggest party for the first time at the Assembly elections.

If polls are correct, nationalist party Sinn Fein will be entitled to the role of First Minister for the first time ever but will need the support of the largest Unionist party to form a government.

But the DUP party leader Sir Jeffrey Donaldson said his party will only enter into a power-sharing government in Stormont if other parties agree that the Northern Ireland Protocol must be removed or replaced.

Sinn Fein accused the DUP of refusing to accept the democratic outcome of the election during a leaders’ debate of the five major political parties where Sir Jeffrey accused his nationalist rivals of plotting to hold a unification referendum.
