The former hunger striker called on supporters to ensure he and running mate Elisha McCallion are returned as MLAs for the constituency on Thursday.

“We brought down the Assembly around the issues of justice, equality, respect and dignity, that’s what we go forward on, that’s what we were asking people to do,” said Mr. McCartney.

He appealed: “On March 2, remember all those days, from the civil rights movement, from the Battle of the Bogside, internment, Bloody Sunday, the hunger strike, our electoral successes, Martin’s image as he collapsed the Assembly, that we can combine together to give Sinn Féin the most powerful vote ever on March 2.”
