An election of surprises all round

Jayne McCormack

Counting has ended for the NI results of the European elections, with three women elected as MEPs for the first time ever. Over in under 12 hours, this election brought with it surprises that few saw coming.

Sinn Féin’s Martina Anderson topped the poll but her vote was down. She took the third and final seat.

The DUP’s Diane Dodds was the first elected, but it was Alliance leader Naomi Long who exceeded expectations. She took the second seat - and polled more than 170,000 votes - taking transfers from right across the spectrum.

The Ulster Unionists have some reflecting to do - they failed to retain the seat they’ve held for four decades, with Danny Kennedy only coming sixth.

Now the question is: How long will the three successful candidates be MEPs?
