Poll: Should Arlene Foster step aside for RHI investigation?

Despite the continued pressure on Arlene Foster to step aside for the investigation in the Renewable Heating Incentive, the First Minister insists she is not for moving.

Sinn Fein have repeatedly called for the DUP leader to step aside for an investigation into the £490million overspend of the scheme which Mrs Foster set up during her time as enterprise minister.

In a plan outlined last week the party said she could step aside for an initial four-week period to allow for a preliminary report into the matter.

But she has resisted the calls saying she has done nothing wrong.

So should Mrs Foster allow one of her DUP colleagues to stand in for her while an investigation takes place? Take our poll below.
