Gerry Lynch is to stand for Alliance in East Antrim
Gerry Lynch has been selected to stand in the forthcoming Westminster election in East Antrim for the Alliance Party.
Mr Lynch worked in Whitehall in London until 2007 when he returned to NI to become Executive Director of the Alliance Party.
"Northern Ireland needs fresh faces at Westminster," he said.
"Many people are rightly angry at politicians after the expenses scandals and failure of the Executive to deliver on the issues that matter.
"Most of us in Northern Ireland want to change politics for the better; to do that we need to replace our politicians with better ones."
