The 2017 Westminster elections in Northern Ireland

The Elections

The 8 June 2017 general election, called three years early early by Prime Minister Theresa May, had dramatic consequences in the UK as a whole, with the Conservatives failing to deliver on the promise of most opinion polls and slipping to a minority government requiring support from the DUP. In Northern Ireland, the DUP and Sinn fein made major advances, gainig two and three seats respectively and wiping out parliamentary representation for the SDLP and UUP.
