The Lagan Valley MLA stated: “What are Sinn Fein and the DUP currently playing at?
“They are both out of touch with reality and are not responding to the real needs of the public. Many people are facing financial ruin because of rising living costs and the effects of the credit crunch, yet all Sinn Fein and the DUP are doing is playing petty political games.
“The Assembly is still sitting. Alliance, the Opposition, is working hard to hold the failing Executive to account, yet Sinn Fein and the DUP continue to snub the public with their inaction.
“Where is the delivery that the DUP holds so dear? Where is the radical vision that Sinn Fein believes it possesses? They have let the public down and it’s time that they showed some leadership and took responsibility.
“The public has lost patience with these two parties and believe they do not deliver value for money in government. This deadlock can go on no longer. Why should the people of Northern Ireland suffer for the failure of Sinn Fein and the DUP?”
