Speaking this evening DUP Leader Arlene Foster MLA said,
“This evening our Members of Parliament voted in support of a General Election on Thursday 12th December.
It is right that the people of Northern Ireland have their say through the ballot box.
The DUP will use this opportunity to campaign strongly to send a message that Northern Ireland is better in the Union of the United Kingdom and we cannot be separated economically from Great Britain.
We have a record of speaking up for Northern Ireland in Westminster and delivering for everyone in Northern Ireland.
At a time of great uncertainty as to who will form the next government how Northern Ireland votes will matter as never before.
Unionists need their strongest team returned to so that Northern Ireland’s interests are protected in the next Parliament. That team is the DUP.
This election will matter and we will be campaigning for every vote as we take our message to the people.”
