TUV Lagan Valley candidate Lyle Rea recently submitted his nomination papers for May’s Assembly elections.
Speaking at the time, he said: “People will hear many promises and assurances during the campaign. What I ask people to do is look at the record of TUV in the Assembly.
“It is one of stopping squander and waste, of campaigning for better and new services such as the Air Ambulance for Northern Ireland.
“Others like to talk tough at election time but with TUV you know that we will resist the Republican agenda throughout the next Assembly term, not just talk about doing it during the election campaign. But TUV has a positive vision, one of making Stormont work.
“We simply make the point that continuing do the same old thing and expecting different results is daft yet that is what we have had since 1998.
“Stormont has failed because of how it is set up. We need more democracy.
“We need an opposition. We need straight talking principled politicians, not those who bend with the wind.
“Nothing will change unless you vote for change.
“I appeal to people to vote for the effective voice of opposition and a party which has proven that it will deliver what it promises.”
