Can DUP stop the formation of an executive?

It is one thing to grind to the halt the proceedings of the executive, once elected, in particular when you hold the chair. But can they stop the formation and if so how? Will they not put up a candidate for Deputy First Minister? Why can't the assembly then not simply elect the next in line, which would be the candidate of Alliance?

Or would that be a step to far in the fragile politics of Northern Ireland? Is a stalemate preferred?
