DUP MLA Arlene Foster now says she backs Tom Elliott in his bid for Westminster despite saying just months ago that he could not win. This follows an agreement of a pact between Mr. Elliott’s party and the DUP which allows him a free run in Fermanagh-south Tyrone. Other candidates in the race incumbent, Sinn Fein's Michelle Gildernew, SDLP's John Coyle, the Green Party's Tanya Jones and Hannah Su from the Alliance Party. Earlier Arlene Foster spoke to The Impartial Reporter's Rodney Edwards about the deal between the DUP and UUP.
