The DUP has branded a call from Sinn Féin for a new round of talks at Stormont aimed at restoring power-sharing as a “stunt”.
Other parties are sceptical over whether or not more negotiations will prove successful.
But the DUP has said Sinn Féin are trying to distract from the fact no one is making decisions about health, education and finances.
As Vicki Hawthorne reports, it has been eight months since the Northern Ireland Assembly last met and talks to try to get it up and running again ended in failure more than two months ago.
Detectives are continuing to investigate a shooting at a house in Londonderry where a toddler was asleep at that time.
A number of shots were fired at the front window of the property in the Rossdowney Drive at about 11.30pm on Saturday.
Addressing speculation about the attack, PSNI Chief Inspector Paul McCracken said: “I am aware of rumours circulating in the community that the motivation for this attack was sectarian.
“We will certainly explore this line of enquiry - however I would stress that, at this time, there is no definitive evidence to suggest that this is the case.
While fortunately no one was injured, what makes this incident all the more appalling is that a young, innocent child was asleep in the house at the time.
Those responsible for this attack displayed a sheer recklessness and disregard for human life that most of us cannot fathom.
Chief Inspector McCracken added: “The detective team will investigate all possible lines of enquiries and follow the evidence wherever it may lead.
“I would continue to urge anyone with any information about this crime to contact police on the non-emergency number 101.
“Information can also be passed anonymously via the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
