A new MLA for North Antrim has been selected following the resignation of Sinn Fein MLA Daithi McKay last Thursday.

It was confirmed today that Ballymoney Councillor Philip McGuigan will replace Daithi Mckay as MLA for North Antrim.

Confirming Councillor McGuigan’s selection, Sinn Féin chief whip Carál Ní Chuilín said;

“Following consultation with Sinn Féin activists in North Antrim, the Sinn Féin Ard Chomhairle has approved the selection of Philip McGuigan for co-option as the new MLA for the constituency.

“Philip is an excellent public representative and has served as a councillor in the area since 2001 and was an MLA for North Antrim from 2003 to 2007.

“I have no doubt that with Philip’s return to the Assembly he will continue to provide first class representation to the people of North Antrim.

“I wish him well and look forward to working alongside him in the Assembly.”

Daithi McKay resigned amid allegations he coached the Loyalist Blogger Jamie Bryson via twitter, helping him frame evidence he was to present to Stormon’t Finance & Personnel Committe, which MLA McKay chaired at the time.
