The Newry Democrat claims Kathy Stanton was told a week in advance she was to be deselected:

“She cited personal commitments for her decision, but reliable Republican sources have told the Democrat that she had been approached by party officials one week prior to a selection convention in the Old Park area and told she was being stood down.

  • Could be true, buit the paper deals its sources a blow by not spelling the name of the council ward right – it’s Oldpark.
