She has earlier served as the first minister of her country (from January 2016 to January 2017), along with deputy first minister Martin McGuinness, who resigned after the 'Renewable Heat Incentive' (RHI) scandal surfaced. According to the power-sharing agreement of her country, Foster was called to step down. She began her political career since her days at 'Queen's University.' She was a member of the 'Ulster Young Unionist Council' back then. Foster resigned from the ‘Ulster Unionist Party’ (UUP) in 2003. She joined the 'Democratic Unionist Party' (DUP) the following year and successfully ran for the seat of the councilor of the ‘Fermanagh District Council.’ Foster filled in the vacated position of the first minister in 2010. Foster also served in the ‘Northern Ireland Executive,’ as the minister of the environment (2007–2008), the minister for enterprise and investment (2008–2015), and the minister for finance and personnel (2015–2016).
