AE22 FOYLE: Final list of candidates confirmed

A field of 14 candidates will contest Foyle's five seats, with three of the previously sitting MLAs entering an election for the first time. 

Sinn Féin's Pádraig Delargy and Ciara Ferguson were co-opted less than a year ago and will be hoping to improve the party's electoral fortunes after losing out to the SDLP's Colum Eastwood by over 16,000 votes in the 2019 Westminster election.

Mark Durkan will be joined by SDLP colleagues Sinéad McLaughlin and former mayor of Derry City and Strabane District Council, Brian Tierney, on the ballot paper.

Gary Middleton currently holds the constituency's only unionist seat, and will face competition from the TUV's Elizabeth Neely and the UUP's Ryan McCready as he bids to be returned to Stormont.
