Allegations of ‘voter fraud’ as selection row hits SDLP in Derry

An election has yet to be even formally called, but already the first allegations of voter fraud have been made. The SDLP’s Foyle selection convention led to sitting MLA Mary Bradley being deselected. However, her election agent has alleged that some of those voting in the convention used ‘proxy’ addresses in order to make themselves eligible to vote for another, unnamed candidate.
