Bob can’t play pass the Assembly seat…

BOB McCartney (QC) won’t be happy to find out that if he wins more than one seat in the Assembly election, he won’t be able to just pass the extra ones on to those on his substitute bench. He can hold the seats if he wins them, but according to the Irish Times, the NIO says “should he decide to resign one of his seats if elected on March 7 it would trigger a by-election instead of going to one of his party colleagues”.
