Assembly Election 2017: Raymond McCartney and Elisha McCallion expected to run for Sinn Fein in Foyle
Raymond McCartney and Elisha McCallion are expected to be chosen to run for Sinn FÃ©in in the Foyle constituency.
Outgoing Foyle MLA Raymond McCartney, an experienced political figure in Sinn Féin, was first elected to the Assembly in 2004.
Elisha McCallion is seen as one of a number of rising figures within the party.
Mrs. McCallion, a former Mayor of the city, is a councillor on Derry City & Strabane District Council.
This will be her first time running for a seat in the Assembly.
Sinn Féin will hold their Foyle selection convention in Derry tonight - a day after outgoing Foyle MLA and deputy Sinn Fein leader Martin McGuinness announced he was retiring from politics and would not be contesting the election.
