Alliance Party European Election Candidate Ian James Parsley today addressed a meeting of Alliance activists. He said that given recent events Northern Ireland needs unity and positive leadership here, and in the European Parliament.
Ian James Parsley stated: â€œPeople across the community have hope for a better future. They want leadership that will show this region in a positive light.
â€œGiven recent sinister events it is all the more important that there is unity across Northern Ireland. We are in a new generation in Northern Ireland â€“ one that wants only peace and has the resolve to come together to protect that peace.
â€œWe need a strong voice for peace now and need a strong constructive voice in Europe. I want to make Europe work better for Northern Ireland as there is much potential as yet untapped. As the unity candidate, people from the new generation in Northern Ireland will find voice in our message of hope.â€
