UTV’s Ken Reid is reporting that there will be no nominations on Monday. Instead, he says, the legislation that the Irish Times’ Frank Millar reported on will be brought forward on Monday. It’s still in the realms of speculation, mind, and the earlier speculation was of nominations followed by those transitional arrangements. Interestingly the DUP’s Peter Robinson is reported as saying that over 90% of the executive had passed the resolution.. which is a very familiar figure. It’s not what Peter Hain wanted to hear of course.. Adds BBC reports the resolution contains a definite date.. May..
“We have as a result of the resolution further work to do and that is the reason why we are not releasing it at this stage,” he said.
