Have your say

Basil McCrea has appointed four members to NI21’s executive, after the party’s ruling body fell apart on polling day last week.

The NI21 leader, whose party faces questions over its very existence after taking just 1.6 per cent of the vote and being rent asunder by internal feuds, announced in an email to party members that he was taking steps to reorganise the party.

Mr McCrea has also faced calls from his deputy leader, John McCallister, and some candidates, to step aside following allegations from more than one former party worker that he engaged in sexual misconduct.
