Commenting on the events surrounding the Bobby Storey funeral, Green Party NI leader Clare Bailey MLA said:
"This episode has demonstrated an abject failure of leadership at a time when people needed it the most.
"Apologies to date have been reserved and fall short of acknowledging the standards required from those in senior public office.
"People have sacrificed so much as we enter into the second year of the pandemic. This, in spite of the lack of leadership from people who knew better but chose to act otherwise.
"Politically, the pandemic has laid bare the inability of the five party Executive to cope with crisis.
"I only hope that our people stay the course in the coming weeks and months as we continue to struggle through this crisis."
