The Moderator of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland, Rt Rev Dr Ian McNie has congratulated Arlene Foster MLA on her election today as Northern Ireland’s First Minister.

Dr McNie said: “The call to leadership in the public square can be an onerous responsibility bringing with it many challenges and opportunities to work for the common good of all the people of Northern Ireland.

“The Bible calls on all Christians to pray for those in authority and as she assumes the joint responsibilities of leadership with the Deputy First Minister, both Mrs Foster and Mr McGuinness can be assured of my prayers and the prayers of many throughout our Church.”
