Alliance candidates for election revealed

Alliance has revealed its full list of candidates for the forthcoming election.

The party will run a total of 21 candidates across the 18 constituencies, with a number of new faces joining experienced MLAs from the last Assembly term.

Party Leader Naomi Long said the candidates represented the chance to change politics here for good.

“This is truly an opportunity, maybe the best and perhaps the only one people will have for a generation, to change our politics into something honest, respectful and hard-working.

“Division will not go away if we keep voting along orange and green tribal lines, so this is the chance for people to bring our society together and make us stronger, to make a change for good.

“People can use this chance to make a stand against the seemingly constant scandals, links to paramilitaries and division that costs us more per year than everything else put together.

“But they need to grasp this opportunity and vote for Alliance candidates, who can help make that change.”
