The SDLP has voted 'decisively' in favour of a partnership with Fianna Fáil.

At a conference in Newry, County Down this afternoon, roughly 70 percent of members backed the move (121 votes), with 30 percent in favour of a wider partnership with other parties (53 votes).

Speaking after the announcement, SDLP leader Colum Eastwood said the result means it's a momentous day for the party:

"We had a very good, robust discussion, and we decided with a huge majority to support the leadership proposal to go into policy partnership with Fianna Fáil."

He added: "What we have to do now is unite behind this result and deliver for the people that we need to deliver for."
