The multi-party agreement required the parties to “use all the influences they might have” to obtain the dismantling of all paramilitary weapons within two years of the adoption of the agreement by referendums. The standardization process has forced the British government to reduce the number and role of its armed forces in Northern Ireland “to a level compatible with a normal peaceful society.” These include the elimination of security measures and the abolition of special emergency powers in Northern Ireland. The Irish government has pledged to conduct a “thorough review” of its violations of national law. During his recent visit to London, President Obama – a man whose political career speaks of a steely resistance to this cynicism – addressed an audience of young people from all over Britain and specifically asked them to reject political pessimism. When he answered a question directly about our peace process, Obama formulated his usual positivity and encouraged the next political generation here to “forge a new identity that consists of being from Northern Ireland, unlike Unionistoder or Sinn Féin, to decide only the country as a whole, is more important than any particular political group or flag.” Direct domination of London ended in Northern Ireland when power was formally transferred to the new Northern Ireland Assembly, the North-South Council and the Anglo-Irish Council when the opening decisions of the Anglo-Irish Agreement came into force on 2 December 1999.    Article 4, paragraph 2 of the Anglo-Irish Agreement (the agreement between the British and Irish governments on the implementation of the Belfast Agreement) required both governments to inquire in writing about compliance with the terms of entry into force of the Anglo-Irish Agreement; The latter is expected to come into effect as soon as both notifications are received.  The British government has agreed to participate in a televised ceremony at Iveagh House in Dublin, the Irish Foreign Office. Peter Mandelson, Minister of Northern Ireland, participated in his participation in early December 2, 1999. He exchanged notifications with David Andrews, the Irish Foreign Secretary. Shortly after the ceremony, at 10:30 a.m., the Taoiseach, Bertie Ahern, signed the declaration of formal amendment of Articles 2 and 3 of the Irish Constitution. He then informed the D`il that the Anglo-Irish agreement had entered into force (including some endorsements to the Belfast Agreement).   The multi-party agreement is an agreement between the British government, the Irish government and most political parties in Northern Ireland. It defines the support of the signatory parties under the Anglo-Irish agreement and provides the framework for various political institutions.
It is divided into three strands: Colin McIlheney of PwC Research, who also organized the GFA Exit Polling referendum in May 1998, said that the latest poll offers an interesting insight into the post-GFA generation: as part of the agreement, the British Parliament repealed the Government of Ireland Act 1920 (which had established Northern Ireland , said Ireland and claimed a territorial claim over the whole of Ireland) and the citizens of the Republic of Ireland amended Articles 2 and 3 of the Constitution of Ireland which imposed a territorial right on Northern Ireland.
