PM Johnson Travels To NI Next Week For Talks On Protocol: Sinn Fein

UK

Wires reporting that Prime Minister Boris Johnson will travel to Northern Ireland on Monday 16 May according to Sinn Fein's leader in Northern Ireland, Michelle O'Neill. Comes amidst a growing political crisis in Northern Ireland. The Democratic Unionist Party has blocked the election of a speaker of the NI Assembly, meaning the devolved legislature cannot even convene. This is part of a protest from the party against the continued implementation of the Northern Ireland Protocol in the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement.

  • The Irish republican Sinn Fein won a plurality of seats for the first time in the 5 May Northern Ireland assembly elections, the first time that a party committed to the unification of Ireland has come away in a position to take the First Minster's office.
  • Westminster and Brussels currently engaged in an escalating war of words over the protocol, which unionists in NI and hardline Brexiteers want to see removed due to friction on trade between NI and the rest of the UK.
