Tom Elliott has been unanimously endorsed as the Ulster Unionist Party's candidate for Fermanagh and South Tyrone.
Speaking after a full selection meeting in Enniskillen, Tom Elliott said:
"It is an honour to be selected as the Ulster Unionist Candidate for Fermanagh and South Tyrone. This is an area I have previously had the privilege to serve as a Councillor, MLA and MP.
"This will be the most important general election in generations. The MPs elected on December 12th will have a decisive role in shaping the UK’s future international and domestic direction for many decades to come.
"Brexit is the defining issue of the period. I believe a bad Brexit deal would be just as damaging, both economically and constitutionally, as a no deal.
"It is essential that Northern Ireland sends the maximum number of MPs to Parliament who will take their seats, take part in the debates and cast their votes.
"It's hugely important that Fermanagh and South Tyrone, the most westerly constituency in the United Kingdom, is represented in Westminster.
"I have been humbled by the support I've received across all sections of the community in Fermanagh and South Tyrone in recent weeks and it is my hope that after December 12th I will be able to give them back their voice."
