Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
What happens if Alliance beats DUP in 2022 to become second largest after Sinn Fein?

If I remember correctly, you need a Nationalist and a Unionist party to form a government. Or is it explicitly the largest Nationalist and largest Unionist?

Does Alliance count as Unionist here? They are listed as Other on Wikipedia.

I guess my questions boils down to if Sinn Fein and Alliance (and possibly more if needed to form a majority) can form a government or if there are formal obstacles against that.
