Dunlop selected for Alliance in North Antrim

Jayne Dunlop has been selected by the Alliance Party to stand in the forthcoming Westminster election in North Antrim. She says the party is the best alternative to tribal politics.

Jayne Dunlop said: “More than ever, Northern Ireland needs political representatives who will work together for the good of the entire community, putting aside political agendas to help every member of our diverse community. If elected I would work for everyone to improve health services, secure a first class education system, provide housing and employment opportunities, increase environmental awareness and improve the social structure of our community.

“For too long major issues have been sidelined by the continuing sectional politics inherited from our troubled past.

“My aim is to make North Antrim a more prosperous and united region where people can develop their talents and make a positive contribution to their local communities.

“Alliance believes in positive and constructive politics. We are delivering a shared future and it is Alliance that got the DUP and Sinn Fein to agree the new community relations strategy.”
