Keith McGrellis said: “It is a great honour to be chosen to run for Alliance in Foyle.
“Only the Alliance Party offers voters a chance to vote for a shared future and not the tribal politics of the other parties.
“The public are now tired of the orange and green politics of old, they are now demanding that the politicians move with the times and realise that the sectarian headcount should be ended.
“Every party has realised that we face uncertain economic times, but no party has put forward plans that save money without major cuts, Alliance has however said that we can save money from tackling the costs of division. Nearly one billion pounds is wasted every year on the duplication of services, and until we look at this issue the Stormont Executive may be forced to make cuts to frontline services.
“Only a vote for Alliance can show you want to build a united community in our City – breaking down the segregation that costs every household here over £1000 a year because of duplicated services, fighting sectarianism and prejudice and working for an honourable solution to the City name dispute which values both of our main traditions.”
