Conall McDevitt has been selected to replace Carmel Hanna as MLA for South Belfast. Ms. Hanna is standing down in the New Year. Mr McDevitt said his selection was an honour and he paid tribute to Mrs Hanna’s work as an MLA.
“For more than a decade Carmel Hanna has led by example and her record as a hard working representative is unquestionable. It will be a big job to fill her boots but I promise to work tirelessly to build on the strong foundations she has laid and to honour her work and her values by bringing the same dedication she has to the issues which challenge all of our lives.”
