SDLP members in South Belfast voted this evening to select the replacement MLA for Conall McDevitt.
He’ll become the MLA sometime tomorrow, once party leader and nominating officer Alasdair McDonnell informs the Chief Electoral Officer, and once the CEO confirms that Fearghal McKinney is happy to be returned as MLA for South Belfast.
While the result isn’t in doubt, Martina Purdy who spent her evening at the Welly Park Hotel mentions that the voting statistic only had one source … Happy to correct if anyone can confirm or deny. [alaninbelfast at gmail dot com if you need to get in touch]
(I’ll get a better picture for the next Fearghal post!)
