Brexit LIVE: ‘Doesn’t understand EU!’ French politician rages at Truss | Politics | News

DUP leader Sir Jeffrey Donaldson has said he cannot set out a timetable for his party’s return to devolved powersharing at Stormont.

Sir Jeffrey said his party can only make a decision on its next move when the incoming prime minister is in office and has made clear its intent on Brexit’s Northern Ireland Protocol.

His comments came ahead of the latest attempt to restore the political institutions in Belfast by way of a recalled sitting of the Assembly.

Wednesday afternoon’s bid, instigated by the SDLP, is set to again end in failure as the DUP has made clear it will continue to block the election of an Assembly Speaker, meaning no further business can be done.

The Stormont institutions have been in flux since February when the DUP withdrew its first minister from the devolved Executive, calling for the UK Government to act on the protocol.

The party has remained firm, resisting several attempts to resuscitate the powersharing institutions until it sees progress from the Government in removing trading barriers between Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK.
