Danny Kennedy selected as the Ulster Unionist Westminster candidate for Newry and Armagh

Danny Kennedy has been congratulated by the Ulster Unionist Party Leader, Mike Nesbitt MLA, on his selection as the Ulster Unionist Party’s candidate for the constituency of Newry & Armagh in the forthcoming Westminster election.

Mr Kennedy was endorsed at a meeting of the Newry & Armagh Constituency Association held in Armagh City on Monday night. Mr Kennedy`s name will now be passed to Party Officers for ratification.

Mr Kennedy said: “It is an honour and a privilege to be selected as the Ulster Unionist Party`s candidate for the constituency of Newry & Armagh, a place where I have lived all my life. I am the only Unionist who can win this seat.

“I am the only non-Sinn Fein candidate who can take this seat and represent all the people of the constituency at Westminster. Everyone knows my record of representation and if elected I will ensure that for the first time since 2005, a voice from Newry & Armagh will be heard in the House of Commons. I`ll be a full-time MP.”

Mr Nesbitt said: “Danny Kennedy has a long record of service and hard work for the people of Newry & Armagh. There is no better man to represent them in Westminster. Danny`s dedication to his constituency is well known and recognised. He is the only realistic alternative to Sinn Fein in the forthcoming Westminster election.”
