Volt is calling upon the DUP and the British Conservative Party to end their attempts to block the restoration of the Stormont institutions – and accept the NI Protocol. A clear majority of the MLAs elected in the NI Assembly elections on 5th May 2022 are in favour of the NI Protocol. The people of NI now need their elected representatives to get back to work and deal with the urgent issues that affect their lives – such as health, education and the cost of living crisis.
