Gregory Campbell
Gregory Campbell

Date of birth

15 February 1953

Political profile

Gregory Campbell was elected to the House of Commons in 2001 at his third attempt (once in Foyle, twice in East Londonderry).

Mr Campbell has been a high profile grassroots politician for some years, having been a member of Londonderry City Council since 1977 - which, in tune with the city's Catholic majority, was renamed Derry City Council in 1984, a decision he vehemently opposed.

Mr Campbell sat in the Northern Ireland Assembly, which existed in the early 1980s, and was also elected to the new Northern Ireland Assembly set up as part of the Good Friday Agreement in 1998.

He has also spent some time as a minister on the Northern Ireland Executive, as part of the DUP's policy of rotating the appointments between various of their Assembly Members.

His election win in 2001 was one of three DUP gains from the Ulster Unionists; now at Westminster, he sits on the Commons transport committee.
