November 26, 2009 9:52 PM

Anna Lo, candidate for the Alliance Party to Wesminster parliament.Anna Lo MBE MLA has been selected by the Liberal Democrats sister party in Northern Ireland, the Alliance Party, to stand in the next Westminster General Election for the constituency of South Belfast.

Members of the Chinese Liberal Democrats were pleased to hear of her selection having already seen the valuable contribution that she has made to the Northern Ireland Assembly where she is already a member of the Assembly committees for Social Development, and for Employment and Learning.

"Anna Lo was the first ethnic Chinese person to be elected to a legislative parliament in Europe. We hope that she will be successful in the General Election!"

Commenting on her selection, Anna Lo said: "I am very proud to have been chosen to stand for Alliance in the forthcoming Westminster election. South Belfast needs a strong voice on this stage and needs someone whose number one priority is ending division in our society.

The only way we can unlock the cash needed to provide better front line services and also attract more jobs to the region is by ending segregation. No party other than Alliance has worked consistently for a genuinely shared future."
