John Finucane seeking nomination to contest North Belfast
Sinn Féin MLA Gerry Kelly has confirmed that he will nominate Mayor of Belfast John Finucane to contest the pending Westminster election for North Belfast.
Gerry Kelly said:
“With the chaos in Westminster continuing, the likelihood of an election is increasing daily.
“I am proud to be nominating the current Mayor of Belfast, John Finucane to stand for Sinn Féin in that election.
“That will be our opportunity to reject the madness of the Tory/DUP Brexit and build support for Irish Unity. Sinn Féin is ready to fight that election and to seize the opportunity to oust Brexiteer DUP MPs.
“Given the catastrophe that Westminster is attempting to force upon our island it is vital that we continue to show Dublin, Europe and the world that we reject Brexit, borders and the DUP.
“I am confident that in John Finucane we can return a pro-Remain anti-Brexit MP in North Belfast.”
