AE22: Plus ça change likely across County Derry's constituencies

The Executive party leaders have now squirmed under the lights of both the UTV and BBC studios, with the latter on Tuesday night causing the most excitement.

A fairly mundane election campaign has bubbled more over the last few days and gives rise to what could be a fascinating count on a NI-wide basis.

While constituency matters were not the focus of the debates, it seems unlikely things will change too much in County Derry's three constituencies.

Polls are showing the Sinn Féin vote is likely to hold, and although a drop for the DUP and a surge for Alliance is predicted, it would take a large shift to alter things too radically.

That said, the only result that really matters is the one we'll bring you on Friday. You can follow all the comings and goings on our LIVE blog here.
