An Alliance candidate has hit out at those responsible for “trying to erase” the party’s presence in Armagh.
Jackie Coade is standing for election on May 2 but says her, and her party’s presence, is being erased by vandals who have removed the majority of her posters from locations across the city.
Ms Coade says her campaign posters have been taken from Moy Road, Newry Road, Dobbin Street, Windmill, Keady Road and the Killylea Road over the last number of days.
She says there are only a small number of posters left, and it’s in areas with visible CCTV cameras.
Speaking to Armagh I, Ms Coade, said: “How can anyone say this is a fair campaign when this is happening? It is a criminal offence to take posters belonging to any party.
“It seems someone is desperately trying to erase Alliance’s presence in Armagh.
“It is extremely worrying that someone would do this considering the inclusive message Alliance delivers.”
She added: “I am extremely disappointed this should happen. I have had wonderful support on the doors and dismayed at the theft of the posters.
“I have reported to the police and appeal to anyone who may have seen anything to please contact myself or the police on the 101 number.”
