North Antrim TUV MLA Jim Allister has announced that he is to stand in the European Parliament elections.

The TUV leader is a former MEP (2004-09).

Speaking at a TUV delegates conference in Belfast, he said: “Providing the electorate with the opportunity to better their representation in Brussels - when last, apart from at election time, has the public even heard of the three sitting MEPs - and the opportunity to give their verdict on the dismal, pitiful performance of Stormont.”
