Gerry Carroll increases vote in West Belfast bye-election

West Belfast bye election People Before Profit candidate Gerry Carroll, polled an impressive 1,751 votes, 7.6%.

Coming in third behind SF and SDLP, it was an increase from the 1,661 votes 4.8% he received at the recent Assembly elections.



On Saturday 16th April as part of the West Belfast Assembly election campaign People before Profit alliance and election candidate Gerry Carroll took their campaign to the streets of the Shankill.


Gerry Carroll stated ‘It’s the same wherever we go, be it the Shankill or the Falls road people are fed up with the politicians in Stormont. Constantly we are hearing on the doors that the politicians are only out for themselves coupled with a deep anger and concern over the cutbacks’.
‘The reception we received on the doors on the Shankill was fantastic .A lot of people agreed with us when they heard we were against all the cutbacks and for taxing the super rich’.
‘Quite a number of people also confirmed that they were giving me their first preference vote on the 5th May, which was great. People are struggling to make ends meet as it is and are desperate for an alternative which will stick up for ordinary people and call for the rich to be taxed and the bankers to pay us back’.
Stormont is united in its support for cuts and attacking public services .People Before Profit is an alternative which unites people across all communities to reject the cuts and form a radical ,fresh kind of politics in Northern Ireland’.
‘At every election, parties stick to their own communities in the North. Unionist parties campaign in ‘Unionist’ areas and Nationalist parties campaign in ‘Nationalist’ areas. People before Profit wants to break that mould .We believe that workers, students, pensioners, unemployed have a common interest to come together to defend our living standards from the onslaught which is coming'


People before Profit candidate for the West Belfast Assembly constituency -Gerry Carroll ,has issued a challenge to DEL Minister Danny Kennedy to a public debate over tuition fees.
‘Coming into the election an issue for many current and potential students as well as their families is the issue of tuition fees’.
‘Minister Kennedy has stated that fees will have to increase to £6,000 a year, this will see the University door slammed in the face of thousands of students’.
‘As a former student and student representative myself I know the difficulties many students already face in University-the ministers plans will see university life get harder as students struggle to pay an outrageous £18,000 for a three year degree.
‘At the moment the only options presented is either higher fees or slashing thousands of jobs in education. In People Before Profit we believe there is an alternative to this unfair and short-sighted vision for education. I want to debate the Minister on that alternative, I believe he has an obligation to debate his plans for education especially at a time when thousands of young people go to the polls ‘.

People before Profit West Belfast Candidate says -‘Vote Yes for Strike Action in NHS’

The already under funded Health service will reach breaking point if the plans outlined in the McKinsey report are implemented, this will see at least 10,000 workers sacked from the Health service in Northern Ireland.
