The Alliance Party has chosen Aaron McIntyre for the Westminster by-election in West Belfast. Aaron is 19-years old, is studying archaeology at Queens University in Belfast, and he stood in the recent council election for Alliance in the Dunmurry Cross area.
Aaron McIntyre said: “I am very proud to be the Alliance candidate for West Belfast in the forthcoming by-election. Alliance has a clear and radical vision for Northern Ireland to help create more jobs and tackle the cost of division. People have responded very positively to our message in the recent elections and Alliance has massive momentum at present.
“This has been an excellent year for Alliance. The public across Northern Ireland showed on 5 May that they want more Alliance representatives, delivering an extra Assembly seat and many more Councillors. We put forward the most comprehensive manifesto ever seen here with detailed policies on the economy, job creation and tackling segregation. Our vision of positive politics resonates with the public and we will continue to lead change for everyone.”
