STORMONT TALKS DEADLINE EXTENDED UNTIL AFTER JUNE 8 ELECTION
THE North’s talks deadline will be given more time to reach a deal to restore a power-sharing executive at Stormont.
British Secretary of State James Brokenshire had set early May as the deadline for the current talks process.
But according to the BBC, the new deadline will be the end of June.
The provisions to form an executive by that date will be included in emergency legislation that will be fast tracked through Westminster.
The deadline extension is to allow for more talks after the Westminster election on Thursday, June 8.
