Northern Ireland: Stormont Assembly fails to elect new speaker blocking formation of new government

Summary by Ground News
Sinn Féin proposed a recall last week, supported by Alliance and SDLP. But a new Speaker and the first and deputy first ministers cannot be installed without the DUP's support. DUP said it wants "action" first on the Northern Ireland Protocol. The upshot of all of this is that the people of Northern Ireland must continue to wait for their elected representatives to start working.
