NEC Statement - Northern Ireland Alliance Party call for Assembly
The Liberal Party notes the call from the Northern Ireland Alliance Party for a new initiative to break the stalemate preventing the effective government of the province via the Stormont Assembly.
The party believe the Alliance Party has taken a very reasoned view, in that whilst the NI parties cannot agree on a power sharing Executive, there could be benefit in reconvening the NI assembly as a mechanism to encourage common ground initiatives.
Northern Ireland has now been without a functioning Executive since January 2017, a counterproductive period of almost 14 months of political deadlock between Unionist and Republican parties.
The lack of a sustainable working legislative prevents the long-term development of the province, and fosters a power vacuum which undermines democracy and good government.
