Following the announcement of a General Election for 8th June, Ulster Unionist Leader Robin Swann MLA said:
“This election will be about strengthening the hand of the United Kingdom in forthcoming BREXIT negotiations. NI needs strong representation in Westminster now more than ever, arguing the best case for Northern Ireland.
“Tom Elliott & Danny Kinahan have proven that Ulster Unionist MPs can be that positive, pragmatic voice for Northern Ireland.
“Following the March election I would encourage everyone to ensure they are registered to vote and that if necessary they secure postal and proxy votes for the 8th of June to ensure their voice is heard at the ballot box.”
