Contents Of The Good Friday Agreement

The multi-party agreement is an agreement between the British Government, the Irish Government and most of the political parties in Northern Ireland. It sets out the support of the signatory parties under the terms of the Agreement between the Republic and Ireland and constitutes the framework for various political institutions. It is divided into three parts: after the marathon negotiations, an agreement was finally reached on 10 April 1998. The Good Friday agreement was a complex balancing act that reflected the three-stranded approach. In Northern Ireland, it created a new de décentraliséed assembly for Northern Ireland, requiring that executive power be shared by the parties that represented both communities. In addition, a new North-South Council of Ministers should be created to institutionalise the link between the two parts of Ireland.
