Judith Cochrane MLA said: “This survey has shown that voters place a greater emphasis on the economy than tribal politics.
“Parties must go into the elections with a positive message of how we can improve people’s lives rather than playing the orange and green cards. Parties should not attempt to play on the public’s fears but should instead say how we can make Northern Ireland better.
“I would also like to welcome the results of the survey in which Alliance was seen as the second most trustworthy party on economic matters. We have put forward sound economic policies that would result in a positive change for our economy and society. If enough people step forward and support Alliance, then we can make more of a difference.”
