Newly elected Sinn Féin MLA Philip McGuigan has said that it is clear from yesterday’s results that the momentum for change must be matched by political decisions.
“Firstly I want to thank the 7600 voters across North Antrim who helped deliver such an historic result.
“If this election was about Equality, Respect and Integrity then the people have certainly spoken and spoken in huge numbers.
“We need a political system than can deliver for everyone and at the expense of no- one.
“The issue of Equality should frighten nobody. I am looking forward now to working on behalf of all citizens in North Antrim.”
