East Derry Sinn Féin have selected 2 candidates for the upcoming assembly elections.
Sitting MLA Caoimhe Archibald and Cathal Ó hOisín were unanimously selected on Saturday
Speaking after the selection convention MLA Caoimhe Archibald said “I am honoured to be selected to stand again by my fellow activists. We are facing in to an election due to the arrogance of the DUP and Arlene Foster and the time is right for the people to have their say.”
“Gregory Campbell proudly boasted “bring it on” in reference to an election only a few weeks ago. Well we have brought it on. This election is about equality for all, about rights for all and about an end to corruption and arrogance of the few.”
Fellow candidate Cathal Ó hOisín added “I too am honoured to have been select to fight this election. Sinn Féin in this constituency are on the up, as we have proved by increasing our vote at every assembly election. This shows the momentum is with Sinn Féin thanks to our strong team of councillors on Causeway Coast and Glens council and our record of delivering for the local area.”
“Myself and Caoimhe are both extremely experienced in working for our constituents over many years and we can continue to do that as part of a strengthened Sinn Féin team in the assembly.”
