Video: SDLP's Claire Hanna hopes to be back 'doing the business we are supposed to be doing' after election

SDLP MLA Claire Hanna said on Wednesday the NI electorate were going to the polls with "a big hole in local governance."

The South Belfast Assembly member - who is seeking re-election in March - said: "So many ends have not been tied up."

"I very much hope we can get back here after the election. I just don't see what we've to gain from a long period of talks - and meanwhile our problems like the lack of a budget, like the lack of a Brexitt plan, continue.

"I want to hopefully be re-elected and be back here doing the business we are supposed to be doing," she said.
