Northern Ireland’s political parties to meet PM and Secretary of State in Downing Street today for power-sharing talks – ‘There is very little time left’

Northern Ireland’s five political parties are set to meet with the Prime Minister Theresa May and Secretary of State James Brokenshire at Downing Street today.

They are meeting to continue discussions aimed at restoring the power-sharing Executive in Northern Ireland.

Speculation has mounted that an agreement will be difficult to reach due to the deal currently being negotiated between the DUP and Conservative Party to support the Tory government.

Speaking yesterday Secretary of State for Northern Ireland James Brokenshire said that the UK government would do everything they can to restore the power-sharing institutions.
