Northern Ireland’s First Minister Arlene Foster is set to leave the DUP when she stands down as party and Stormont leader.
Foster announced on Wednesday that she will resign as DUP leader on 28th May and step down as First Minister a month later.
Foster has led the DUP since December 2015, becoming only the third leader and the first woman to hold the role in the party’s history.
There has been growing discontent about Foster’s handling of Brexit negotiations and the Northern Ireland Protocol within the DUP.
It is unclear at the moment who will assume the role of leader of the DUP.
