Deborah Girvan said: “I think the public deserve to know whether Mike Nesbitt would also vote against the Hillsborough Agreement. Does he believe in the tired, negative dogma of the Ulster Unionists or does he want to present a positive future for Northern Ireland, with an Assembly that delivers and a stable peace process?
“People are angry with the Ulster Unionists and they want answers.
“The Ulster Unionists try to differentiate between their Assembly team and the UCUNF link. They simply cannot do this. There are one and the same and the public deserve to know whether their high profile new candidates agree with their party’s decision.”
