About the parliamentary elections in Northern Ireland

The Northern Ireland Assembly elections are very different from most British elections. Assembly members are elected from 18 multi-member constituencies by means of a single transferable vote.

Each constituency has five representatives, totaling 90 in all. Voters assign preferences to candidates on a ballot paper. If a candidate gets enough first preference votes, he wins a seat, and if not, the second, then third preference — and so on — are counted until all seats are filled.

Therefore, multiple counts are needed in each constituency, which means it can take a while for the results to be collected. It is possible that the first count will not lead to the allocation of a seat. Another consequence is that it is not clear whether a party has increased or decreased the total number of seats in a constituency or in general until all seats have been awarded.

Under the terms of the Good Friday Agreement, Northern Ireland’s government is shared by the two main communities: nationalists, who favor closer ties with the Republic of Ireland, and trade unionists, for whom Northern Ireland’s position in the UK is more important.

The largest party in the assembly appoints the prime minister and the largest party from the other community appoints the deputy prime minister. Some parties with community-wide support or whose supporters do not identify strongly with either community think this settlement perpetuates divisions, but in practice since 1998 the largest party has always been from the unionist community and the second largest of the nationalist.
