A meeting of the new Stormont Assembly has taken place this afternoon - ending a deadlock of more than three years.
It's after Sinn Féin, the DUP, the SDLP, Alliance Party and UUP backed a deal to resume power-sharing in Northern Ireland.
Today's session opened with a vote for the new speaker, with Sinn Féin's Alex Maskey taking the role after receiving cross-community support.
DUP leader Arlene Foster has been appointed First Minister, while Sinn Féin's Michelle O'Neill is Deputy First Minister - and they will now serve as joint heads of government.
Naomi Long has been appointed the North's new Justice Minister, while the other ministerial portfolios being divided among the parties:
- Arlene Foster, DUP - First Minister
- Michelle O'Neill, SF - Deputy First Minister
- Naomi Long, Alliance - Justice
- Diane Dodds, DUP - Economy
- Conor Murphy, SF - Finance
- Peter Weir, DUP - Education
- Nichola Mallon, SDLP - Infrastructure
- Deirdre Hargey, SF - Communities
- Robin Swann, UUP - Health
- Edwin Poots, DUP - Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs
It comes after the parties signed up to a deal presented by the Irish and British governments earlier this week.
The deal includes what the UK government has promised will be a major financial package to tackle a host of problems since talks broke down 36 months ago, including the nurses' strikes.
Under the terms of the agreement, the new executive will also take action to reduce spiralling hospital waiting lists; extend mitigation payments for benefit claimants hit by welfare reforms; increase the number of police officers on the streets; and resolve an industrial dispute involving teachers.
