The signing of the agreement was widely supported by the majority of Northern Ireland`s political parties, but not by the Ulster Unionist Party and external governments. However, the Northern Ireland trade union movement did not give much support to the agreement, which led a series of protests and public meetings against the agreement, and the majority of public service unions affiliated with the ICTU held a one-day strike on 13 March. [3] What does the agreement say? With only 14 pages, divided into duplicates — the devil is certainly not in the details. Northern Ireland has added a new addition to the peace agreement lexicon – Hillsborough, Good Friday, Belfast and St Andrews are now complemented by “Stormont House”.” The fact that there is even a Stormont house is a surprise to many that our local politicians left it until the last minute to pull a rabbit out of their hat. The governments of the United Kingdom and Ireland have submitted a draft agreement to restore power-sharing to Stormont, which the DUP has accepted. Implementation of the agreement was delayed due to differences in social reform and controversies over paramilitary activities. [5] The Justice Management Committee and scientists of the Institute for the Study of Conflict Transformation and the Transitional Justice Institute have developed a model implementation law on the management of previous elements of the agreement. [6] A group of civil society activists and academics adopted a set of gender principles for managing the legacy of the conflict in order to fill this gap in the agreement. [7] Social reform has also been the subject of wide-ranging differences between representatives of the executive (particularly Sinn Féin) and the UK government.

The Ministry of Finance was determined that Northern Ireland would adopt social reform and fined the executive for failing to do so. Within the executive, the parties were divided. While Sinn Féin had opposed the adoption of social reform, the Democratic Unionist Party had tried to do so, arguing that it was inevitable and that an omission from London would result in further fines. One of the priority objectives of the Stormont House agreement, particularly from the point of view of the British government, was to resolve the welfare dispute and to adopt reforms. The agreement was ubiquitous and included a wide range of topics. The agreement exists and is part of the paradigm established by previous peace agreements signed between 1998 and 2007. Northern Ireland`s de-deved government could now be reinstated after three years of conflict, after one of the two main parties backed a draft agreement. The DUP backed the agreement put forward by the British and Irish governments on Thursday night to restore the government three years after its bankruptcy. Subsequently, the dispute became a more traditional disagreement on issues such as the Irish language and the thorny legacy of the riots. Late last year, NICVA asked its members for a large number of topics that are now covered by the agreement.

There was a consensus that the number of departments is currently too high, and 90% of respondents said there should be eight or fewer departments. 61% wanted to abolish the compulsory coalition, 71% an official opposition. As a result, progress has been made in this regard. Some of these discrepancies were raised during the interviews between Richard Haass and Professor Meghan O`Sullivan. These discussions began in September 2013 and were interrupted without agreement on 31 December of the same year. Sky News expects the nationalist party to give the go-ahead on Friday afternoon – or no later than Saturday – after being locked in talks with the DUP all week. The relentless strikes by health workers have increased the pressure on heads of state and government to return to a decentralized assembly. The party has always called for an autonomous Irish language act. The DUP has always insisted that the issue not be raised on other issues of culture and identity.
