    The people of Northern Ireland vote on Thursday in an election to decide who commands power in the province. The vote was prompted by the collapse of a power-sharing agreement instituted almost 20 years ago. The two dominant political groups are completely opposed on what should happen in the wake of the Brexit vote. Al Jazeera's Laurence Lee reports from Belfast.
