Voters in Upper Bann could be ‘history makers’, according to Sinn Fein’s Westminster candidate Catherine Seeley.
Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness officially launched Ms Seeley’s election campaign on Friday last, and Ms Seeley called on voters in Upper Bann to be ‘History Makers’ in May’s Westminster election.
The Campaign Launch in Lurgan was also addressed by Sinn Féin Education Minister John O’Dowd MLA and DCAL Minister Carál Ní Chuilín MLA.
Mr McGuinness said: “Catherine is an outstanding candidate who will continue to do what she has already been doing in her time as an elected representative, and as the Deputy Mayor of Craigavon, showing remarkable leadership and commitment to the people of Upper Bann. I am asking everyone to elect her as your MP for Upper Bann on May 7.”
Speaking after the event, Ms Seeley said: “A vote for Sinn Féin in Upper Bann can make history. Sinn Féin are the only chance to change the old, big-house unionist domination of this seat. To make real change there is only one option.
“When it comes to standing up for Upper Bann - you can’t trust the SDLP, DUP, UUP or the British Tories. Only a vote for Sinn Féin can force Westminster, the DUP and the other parties to fulfil the commitments made in recent negotiations.
“On 7 May, I’m asking the people of Upper Bann to make the change, to make the choice, to Make History Happen and to elect me as MP.”
