Traditional Unionist Voice held its AGM last nigh and elected officers for the incoming year. The officers elected were William Ross (President), Jim Allister (Leader), Ivor McConnell (Chairman), Keith Harbinson (Vice-chair), Karen Boal (Secretary) Kenny Loughrin (Treasurer) and Samuel Morrison (Press Officer).Speaking after his re-election as leader Mr Allister said:“Tonight’s meeting showed that Traditional Unionist Voice is not going away. Our phenomenal performance in the European Election – gaining almost 14% of the total vote and 30% of Unionism – has given hope to tens of thousands of Unionists throughout our Province.“We will build on this result and go forward to victory in future elections. Much attention in the media has focused on North Antrim. However, that is far from the only seat TUV will be targeting come the Westminster election. While the DUP voted for a general election last night in the Commons everyone in Northern Ireland knows that they only did so only because the motion had no possibility of success. If the DUP were genuinely concerned about governments facing a crisis of confidence they would call an immediate Assembly election. It’s not just the Westminster administration has clearly lost the confidence of the people it is evident that a large swathe of Unionists – who are not currently represented by a single MLA – do not support Stormont’s terrorist inclusive government.”Party chairman Ivor McConnell announced the formation of a working group to examine the way ahead for the party. The working group, which will explore the strategy for future elections among other issues will report back to the party executive after the summer.
