Sir Jeffrey Donaldson has signalled that he won’t collapse power-sharing after he launched his bid to become the DUP’s fifth leader.

In a statement announcing his candidacy he pledged to put the party “on the path to victory at next year’s election” — whereas an October poll would be on the cards if he was to bring the institutions down.
