Should be "the fact that 132 of them voted in favour of power-sharing would suggest that this is not true" Demiurge 22:08, 5 August 2005 (UTC)
Timeline/composition of Executive
According to , this is the timeline
- 1974-01-01 : Northern Ireland Executive officially took up powers
- 1974-01-04 : UUP rejects Sunningdale, Faulkner quits and sets up Unionist Party of Northern Ireland 
- 1974-03-04 : Pro-agreement unionists decide that Articles 2 & 3 need repeal first
- 1974-05-14 : strike starts
- 1974-05-28 : Brian Faulkner resigns as Chief Executive, etc
The Executive apparently had 6 Faulknerites, 4 SDLP, 1 Alliance, and "4 non-executive office holders who would not have a vote: 2 SDLP, 1 Unionist, and 1 APNI".
What was the cabinet?
"The Agreement had three parts — an elected Northern Ireland Assembly, a power-sharing cross-community Northern Ireland Executive and a cross-border Council of Ireland." (Quoted from the first paragraph)
Why do the links to the Northern Ireland Assembly and the Northern Ireland Executive link to the current institutions with those names, which exist under the 1998 Government of Northern Ireland Act? Shouldn't they link to articles about the Assembly and Executive as constituted by the Sunningdale agreement instead? I think it is confusing to link to the modern equivalents of them, especially because it gives the impression that the insitutions were continuous, when as a matter of fact the Sunningdale Assembly and Executive were abolished under a cloud.
