belfast - Even after the election of Thursday, Pro-Irish party Sinn Fein from Northern Ireland will not occupy her seats in London House of Commons. The party stays boycotting her, said party leader Gerry Adams on Friday night on Thursday.
Sinn Fein, formerly the political branch of terrorist movement IRA, is in the parliaments of Ireland and Northern Ireland. The party was first elected in the Lagerhuis in 1955, but has never attended a debate there.
The boycot can be beneficial for Theresa May. Suppose the party has four seats and those members do not go to the Lagerhuis, they need less seats for an absolute majority. Her Conservatives only need 324 seats, instead of 326.
