- Live results service, reaction and analysis from across Northern Ireland.
It's been an eventful day (and night), with 81 seats declared across Northern Ireland. In a few hours, counting will start again with another 27 to be decided.
BBC News NI Live will have all the latest from 09:00 but in the meantime we're all off for a serious lie down. Thanks for your company!
Here's the latest breakdown of results as the counting ends for tonight.
The candidates, party workers and journalists at the East Belfast must be tired... but spare a thought for the poor folks actually counting the ballots. Would you fancy having to work out the equations at this point? Thought not. Nah, neither would we.
The Alliance Party has held its two seats in East Belfast. Naomi Long is back to Stormont after her spell at Westminster. Chris Lyttle returns for another term at the assembly.
When counting starts again later this morning, there will be three seats still up for grabs. So far David Hilditch (DUP), Gordon Lyons (DUP) and Roy Beggs (UUP, pictured) are over the line.
Stewart Dickson (Alliance) and Alistair Ross (DUP) are expected to claim the fourth and fifth seats but then it is very tight between Oliver McMullan (Sinn Féin), Noel Jordan (UKIP) and John Stewart (UUP).
TUV's Jim Allister topped the poll and has been elected along with Mervyn Storey (pictured) and Paul Frew both DUP.
Three seats will be decided later today with Daithí McKay (Sinn Féin), Robin Swann (UUP) and Philip Logan (DUP) seemingly best placed.
Counting was suspended on Friday - it'll resume this morning. Two MLAs have been elected so far - Maurice Bradley and George Robinson (pictured), both of the DUP.
Tomorrow there's four seats up for grabs with Cathal Ó hOisín, Caoimhe Archibald (both Sinn Féin), Adrian McQullan (DUP), Claire Sugden (Independent) and Gerry Mullan (SDLP) looking the most likely.
We had three MLAs confirmed on Friday - the DUP's Arlene Foster and Maurice Morrow, along with Sinn Féin's Michelle Gildernew.
The big casualty of the day, however, was Sinn Féin’s Phil Flanagan (pictured above), who was eliminated in the fourth round.
Not too much of a story so far, no one's yet been elected. So expect the count staff to be busy later today.
DUP’s Thomas Buchanan topped the poll, followed by Sinn Féin’s Barry McElduff (both pictured above).
We have two MLAs confirmed - the DUP’s Carla Lockhart (pictured) and Sydney Anderson have secured their Stormont seat.
The four remaining seats look likely to be fought between Jo-Anne Dobson, Doug Beattie (both UUP), Catherine Seeley, John O’Dowd (both Sinn Féin) and Dolores Kelly (SDLP) .
Just two MLAs have been elected - both DUP - Alex Easton (pictured) and Gordon Dunne.
Steven Agnew (Green Party), Alan Chambers (UUP), Peter Weir (DUP), Stephen Farry (Alliance) and Andrew Muir (Alliance) are in the mix for the remaining four seats later today.
A kiss from a rose...(tte) wearing MLA.
Yes, so surreal Calamity has changed gender.
Only one constituency left counting at this stage.
Come on East Belfast - you can do it!
Máirtín and Claire (declared earlier) must be back home by now...
Four women take seats - Clare Bailey, Claire Hanna, Emma Little-Pengelly and Paula Bradshaw
From a DUP point of view, it was worth waiting for - Emma Little Pengelly and Christopher Stalford elected in the wee small hours. They join Máirtín Ó Muilleoir (SF); Claire Hanna (SDLP); Clare Bailey (GP); and Paula Bradshaw (All).
Coffee for the troops
Sammy Douglas (DUP) is heading back to the assembly for another term. One of very few moustached MLAs.
DUP have reached the magic 30 seats number - it means the party can trigger a petition of concern by themselves. Effectively allows them to block a bill.
The pizzas are in for the late-night election watchers at the Belfast count.
Green Party candidate Claire Bailey looks likely to be elected and her supporters are staying at the count to see it happen.
He's the story of the Foyle vote - veteran campaigner Eamonn McCann elected to Stormont for the first time.
