SDLP Women are Record Breakers

Today we unveiled our record breaking number of female candidates for the upcoming Assembly election. With 14 out of 34 candidates, the SDLP is running a higher proportion of female candidates than any mainstream Irish party, north or south, ever.

Female candidates are going to be key to the SDLP holding and winning a number of target seats. In Lagan Valley, Marietta Farrell is the only female candidate in the field, while in Newry & Armagh Cllr Sharon Haughey looks set to recover the SDLP's second seat.
