Northern Ireland Assembly Elections: 2022

An election to the Northern Ireland Assembly was held on 5 May 2022. Sinn Féin became the first nationalist party to win the most seats overall in a Northern Ireland election. The DUP lost seats, becoming the second largest party in the Assembly, while the Alliance Party had their best-ever result, becoming the third-largest party. Due to concerns about the Northern Ireland Protocol, the DUP have not taken part in the cross-community election of the Speaker of the Assembly, meaning that the Assembly cannot sit for the time being.
