Northern Ireland deputy first minister won’t step aside: Sinn Fein
BELFAST (NORTHERN IRELAND) – Northern Ireland Deputy First Minister Michelle O’Neill on Thursday dismissed calls by the Democratic Unionist Party, which is a partner in the government, to stand down for reportedly trying to undermine coronavirus curbs.
DUP voiced the demand for Michelle of the Sinn Fein to step aside pending an investigation into the deputy first minister’s presence at the funeral of a party member that saw the presence of a large crowd on Tuesday.
“Michelle will not be standing aside temporarily, or standing down,” said a Sinn Fein spokesman. On Monday Michelle said that she satisfied her actions were in line with public health advice.
