The Democratic Unionist Party has announced its full list of candidates for the 2016 Assembly elections.
44 candidates will contest seats across all 18 Constituencies.
Party Leader Arlene Foster said, ‘I am delighted to be leading such a strong team into the Assembly election. I have a vision for Northern Ireland, but to implement that vision I need a strong DUP team in Stormont. If people want me to continue leading Northern Ireland, then they should vote for our candidates right across the country.
Unlike other parties there is no DUP candidate in the field simply to boost the overall number running. We have a strong mix of experienced representatives joined by new candidates who will be an invaluable addition to our team at Stormont.
This election will shape the future of Northern Ireland for at least a decade. From West Tyrone to West Belfast DUP candidates will be taking a positive message to doorsteps across Northern Ireland.’
The Causeway Coast and Glens Borough covers both the East Londonderry and North Antrim constituencies. Three candidates are to stand in East Londonderry and another four in North Antrim.
The candidates for both constituencies are below:
- East Londonderry
Maurice Bradley, Adrian McQuillan, George Robinson
- North Antrim
Paul Frew, Phillip Logan, David McIlveen, Mervyn Storey
