The SDLP has selected Cara Hunter as an MLA for East Derry following the passing of John Dallat earlier this month.

Ms Hunter is the current Deputy Mayor of Derry City and Strabane District Council.

She was elected on to the council last year.

She said that it is an immense honour to follow in the footsteps of Mr Dallat.

“John dedicated his life to public service and I know just how much he loved representing people here.

“I hope that I can continue that tradition of being a champion for everyone in East Derry.

“This is an incredibly difficult time for people, businesses and communities here.

“And, of course, how we stimulate new investment in skills and jobs for people in East Derry to provide everyone with the opportunity to succeed.

“It is an immense honour to represent people in East Derry. I won’t let them down.”

SDLP Leader Colum Eastwood MP said: “I’m delighted that Cara Hunter will be the new MLA for East Derry, building on the lifetime of dedicated service John Dallat gave to people here.

“Cara is a part of the new generation of SDLP activists stepping up to make a difference in their communities and we’re excited to see the change she can help inspire as a member of the Assembly.”
