North­ern Ire­land beats Bel­gian no-govern­ment record

The Malta Business Weekly - - NEWS -

North­ern Ire­land has beaten Bel­gium's record of 589 days with no elected govern­ment with­out signs of a so­lu­tion in the near fu­ture.

The re­gion has been with­out govern­ment since Jan­uary 2017, when the na­tion­al­ist Sinn Fein party pulled out re­quest­ing equal treat­ment with the pro-Bri­tish Demo­cratic Union­ist Party.

The union­ists demon­strated on Tues­day out­side par­lia­ment, urg­ing the na­tion­al­ists to end their "boy­cott".
