Members of the Legislative Assembly (MLAs; Irish: Comhaltaí den Tionól Reachtach; Ulster-Scots: Laa-Makkan Forgaitherars) are representatives elected by the voters to the Northern Ireland Assembly.


The Northern Ireland Assembly has 90 elected members - five from each of 18 constituencies, the boundaries of which are the same as those used for electing members of the UK Parliament. Its role is primarily to scrutinise and make decisions on the issues dealt with by Government Departments and to consider and make legislation.[1]


MLAs are responsible for the Northern Ireland Assembly.


The basic salary for an MLA is £49,500 while the Speaker, ministers and committee chairs receive an additional 'Office Holders Salary' on top of their basic salary.[2]

From 22 June 1921 until 30 March 1972 MPs of the House of Commons of Northern Ireland and Senators of the Senate of Northern Ireland in the Parliament of Northern Ireland legislated for Northern Ireland like MLAs do today.

Following a referendum on the Belfast Agreement on 23 May 1998 and the granting of Royal Assent to the Northern Ireland Act 1998 on 19 November 1998; a Northern Ireland Assembly and Northern Ireland Executive were established by the Labour government of Prime Minister Tony Blair. The process was known as devolution and was set up to give Northern Ireland devolved legislative powers. MLAs are responsible for the Northern Ireland Assembly.
