Arlene Foster has resigned as Northern Ireland's First Minister.
Her resignation essentially dissolves the Executive, leaving the DUP and Sinn Fein with seven days to agree to go back into power with each other.
Arlene Foster ends her at times controversial reign as the North's First Minister, a post she first took up in 2016.
Following an internal heave Ms Foster officially announced she would step down as leader of the DUP, being replaced by Edwin Poots.
And in a sitting of the Assembly at Stormont, she resigned as First Minister.
As for what happens now, the DUP and Sinn Fein have a week to agree to go back into power together.
However if no agreement is reached, then either party could refuse to nominate a replacement which would trigger a snap election.
However, if the DUP and Sinn Fein can agree to power sharing again, then the new First Minister will be Paul Givan, with Michelle O'Neill resuming her role as Deputy First Minister.
