Ritchie just perfect for role of MP

The official nomination of the SDLP leader Margaret Ritchie to contest the constituency of South Down for Westminster marks a new era for the SDLP. A strong voice is what is needed at Westminster to deliver for all of the people of South Down. Margaret Ritchie will be that strong voice for all of the people of South Down.

Margaret Ritchie will champion the needs of all people within South Down, irrespective of political, religious or other opinion. As Sinn Fein fails to deliver at Westminster, the SDLP will deliver.

The constituency of South Down needs strong representation from a person from South Down and who knows South Down.

Therefore, the only voice who will clearly deliver for the people of South Down is Margaret Ritchie - leader of the SDLP and the next MP for South Down.
