Next Assembly election will be a ‘defining moment for Northern Ireland’ says Sir Jeffrey Donaldson
Sir Jeffrey Donaldson said the next Assembly election would be a “defining moment for Northern Ireland”.
“Make no mistake there are those who will treat next year’s Assembly election as a referendum on a border poll that would plunge Northern Ireland into division and instability at a time when we need to be building a stable and united community,” he said.
“More than ever unionists and those who care about peace and stability must come together to resist this threat.”
The new DUP leader said unionist parties had to acknowledge that many pro-Union people were not voting for them.
“The pace of social change this past decade cannot be ignored by those who wish to represent a majority of the people who live here,” he said.
“At a time when there is no evidence that a majority of people in Northern Ireland would wish to change our constitutional status, unionist parties are failing to secure a majority of votes in Province-wide elections.
“This should serve as a ‘wake up’ call to all unionist parties and a clear sign of where there is considerable room for expansion. I don’t expect this party will ever be able to win the support of every unionist voter, but we must make it a warm house for those who share our vision on the Union from whatever background they may come.”
