BELFAST (Sputnik) — Earlier in the day, May outlined her proposals for leaving the European Union, including leaving the EU single market and controlling immigration. May said that the UK government was taking steps to ensure input from the country's devolved regional administrations to take part in Brexit.
"Despite some warm words and talk of global friendships and cooperation, the exit from the single market and the customs union will mean economic devastation. Nowhere will be more damaged by this vision than Northern Ireland," Eastwood said in the press release.
The party leader also noted the government in Stormont had not submitted its stance on Brexit as the Scottish government has and Welsh government is set to do imminently.
He added that the upcoming Northern Ireland Assembly elections, set to be held in March, would be an opportunity to elect lawmakers who would represent Northern Ireland’s best interests during Brexit n
