Anna Lo MLA said: “The tribal parties must get back to business in the Assembly immediately because local people are crying out for our local representatives to tackle bread and butter issues.
“The election campaign illustrated that people are far more concerned about issues that affect their everyday lives, than tribalism.
“On the doorsteps people were telling me about their concerns regarding water charges and rates rises. They want politicians that work, not ones that cannot even get power sharing started again.
“This election will have meant nothing at all if the tribal parties do not get down to business and form an Executive before deadline day. People want to see action, not hear empty words. Its time to move forward and at the moment only Alliance and the United Community group are doing that.”
