The East Antrim Alliance candidate said: “Only Alliance is in a position to ensure that power is genuinely shared. Alliance is the only alternative to tribal politics. It is essential that local people vote to return a strong Alliance team, to ensure we are at the heart of government to secure real power-sharing.
“The spoils of any election which does not see Alliance at the centre of government will be the sectarian carve up between the tribal parties.
“The power to safeguard a shared future lies with the voter. They know that only Alliance can ensure genuine and stable powersharing and for everyone in Northern Ireland.”
