Those behind security alert will not derail democratic process - McCallion

2 May, 2019 - by Elisha McCallion


Sinn Féin MP Elisha McCallion has said those behind a security alert near a polling station in Derry will not be allowed to derail the democratic process. 

The Foyle MP said: 

"The security alert near the polling station at St Paul's Primary School in Derry is clearly an attempt to disrupt and derail the democratic process. 

"But it has failed as the polling station remains open and voters can access it by another gate via Moss Road roundabout and Bloomfield Park. 

"Those responsible for this security alert will not be allowed to undermine to derail democracy. 

"For many years an unjust regime tried to deny the people of Derry the opportunity to vote but failed; those behind this alert will not succeed either."
