1 Mins read

The Coleraine Councillor Russell Watton has been selected by the Progressive Unionist Party to contest the upcoming Elections to the Northern Ireland Assembly.

Councillor Watton will be running in the Constituency of East Londonderry.

Party Leader Cllr Billy Hutchinson said, “We look forward to contesting the forthcoming elections and providing a real alternative to the mainstream Unionist parties through our brand of progressive unionism. We will continue to work for social transformation, putting the interests of ordinary working-class people and the most vulnerable and marginalised in society first.”

Cllr Hutchinson continued, “All our candidates are committed to representing people through developing progressive policies which make communities better places to live. Our forthcoming manifesto will highlight a range of policies and initiatives that are innovative and which set the Progressive Unionist Party apart as the only progressive alternative in Northern Ireland.

He continued, “We provide a positive alternative to the tiresome, self serving and negative representation that currently dominates mainstream political parties politics. The Union is safe and the constitutional question of Northern Ireland’s position within the UK is no longer the dominant feature of our politics. The people of Northern Ireland deserve and demand a new brand of politics – a politics that is based on the issues that matter to all of our citizens: jobs, education, economy, decent housing and affordable homes.”

He concluded, “That’s the mandate that we are putting before the electorate and that is the social contract that we are offering the people of Northern Ireland. Our message is clear, give us the chance to present a new agenda for politics in Northern Ireland, one based on the issues that affect the lives of all our people.”
