The Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) maintains a single seat majority after Northern Ireland’s parliamentary elections. Sixty-five percent of the voting population turned out to vote, the highest since 1998. Sinn Fein now holds 27 seats and the DUP holds 28 seats of the 90 seats in parliament. The failure of the DUP to win 30 seats means it can no longer veto legislation without cross-party support. Sinn Fein is the nationalist party in Ireland, in favor of uniting the country, while the Democratic Unionist Party is pro-crown.
