UK election: N Ireland waits to see how May deal helps DUP

Many people in Northern Ireland are waiting to see how the socially conservative Democratic Unionist Party will be rewarded for propping up UK Prime Minister Theresa May by supporting a minority government.

    Many people in Northern Ireland are waiting to see how the socially conservative Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) will be rewarded for propping up UK Prime Minister Theresa May's government by supporting a minority government.

     

    The DUP's 10 seats will allow May to stay in power after the recent snap election. But the deal could complicate issues with the Northern Irish nationalist Sinn Fein Party, including a power-sharing agreement that collapsed in January.
