Northern Ireland’s Arlene Foster Steps Down as Democratic Unionist Party Leader

As she announced her exit from the political stage, Foster said that her election as the DUP leader “broke a glass ceiling” and inspired other women to pursue a political career.

Foster assumed office in December 2015 and had since led the Northern Ireland unionists during Britain’s referendum on the membership of the European Union and the party coalition with the ruling Tory government in Westminster after the 2017 election.
