Raymond Stewart has been selected by UKIP to stand in May’s Local Government Elections in the Three Mile Water DEA of Newtownabbey.
Commenting on his selection, Mr Stewart said: “I welcome the opportunity to be able to offer the people of Three Mile Water the authentic party of a Brexit, and a patriotic, UK Unionist alternative.
“UKIP is back up in the polls, membership is growing locally and nationally - and as the political establishment actively try to deny 17.4 million people their democratic right- exit from the EU - many will rightly ask: Why should ever trust them with our vote again?
“UKIP is the only party locally or nationally calling for a full and complete exit from the EU. We didn’t vote for a deal on the EU’s terms which costs us £39 billion; we voted to leave completely. If we haven’t done so on March 29, the people will have been betrayed.”
“UKIP will be contesting the council elections with a clear message and full range of policies. Standing up for a real Brexit, for freedom of speech, for local democracy, for the Union, and standing up for the nation.”
