Prior to the election there was considerable speculation over whether some in the North could bear to see the title of "First Minister" on the desk nameplate of a Sinn Féin representative. The truth is that this role is clearly defined as being part of a joint office. As one political pundit recently noted, "neither one can order paperclips for the office without the other one's agreement".
