Sinn Fein in Pole Position

Sinn Fein Assembly member for Fermanagh & South Tyrone Michelle Gildernew has said that the reintroduction of Jim Dixon into the field left her in prime position to take the seat.

Ms Gildernew said:

``Sinn Fein are well ahead of the SDLP candidate in Fermanagh & South Tyrone. I am the only nationalist candidate capable of winning the seat. The reintroduction of Jim Dixon into the field puts us in pole position to win.''

Ms Gildernew continued:

``The response on the doorsteps has been overwhelming and many former SDLP voters have indicated that they will be voting for me this time round. Sinn Fein is the only nationalist party which has a proven track record in winning this seat.''

Ms Gildernew concluded:

``I am very confident that the voters of Fermanagh & South Tyrone will end years of unionist misrepresentation and return me as their next MP.''
