Allison Morris and Sam McBride assess NI politics following election earthquake 2023

In addition, the number of people who voted for nationalist parties exceeded the number of people who voted for unionist parties for the very first time. This was a historic moment.

And what exactly does all of this imply for the politics, culture, and society of our society’s future?
