Green Party leader Steven Agnew MLA and South Belfast representative Clare Bailey attend the Belfast City Council count at City Hall.

The Green Party has enjoyed a record breaking election in Belfast and Castlereagh.

Elections on 5 May saw the election of Martin Gregg as the party’s first ever councillor in Castlereagh as well as the highest ever Green vote in South Belfast for an Assembly election and in five other Belfast and Castlereagh council constituencies.

Cllr Gregg pledged to repay the voters who put their faith in him: “It is important to remember that you cannot be all things to all people and that you must not compromise your principles.”

Assembly candidate Clare Bailey thanked the voters of South Belfast on behalf of all the local candidates.

“The election has been an exhausting experience, but we are delighted with the support we have received on the doorsteps and at the ballot box.

“The Green Party will be an active presence in South Belfast over the next four years. If you would like to support us, or if we can help you with anything, please contact your local representative.”

Elsewhere in Northern Ireland, Green Party leader Steven Agnew retained the North Down Assembly seat previously held by Brian Wilson and won a seat on North Down Borough Council, while Cllr Cadogan Enright kept his place on Down District Council.
