A special meeting was due to take place last night regarding the Judicial Review of the North West 200 Luxury Hotel and Spa Development. Councillors met at 6pm but walked out of the meeting citing anti-democratic action of the Mayor.
Following the walk out of Unionist councillors last night Sinn Féin Councillor Kieran Mulholland said:
“It is laughable that political unionism has attacked the Mayor for being anti-democratic when it was their actions that prevented the democratic process from taking place.
By walking out of the chamber, leaving the Council without the necessary numbers to operate as per its own standing orders, they prevented debate around a key issue of transparency in public office from being heard in public.”.
