Fermanagh South Tyrone Assembly Candidate Sean Lynch has spoken in support of the initiative to recognise the needs of our older citizens during and after the election campaign.

Mr Lynch said;

"This is an important initiative and one which candidates really should take note of. It is well known that the older generation take the opportunity to utilise their vote very seriously and take a keen interest in which candidates are working for them; one in five of people who will cast their vote on May 5th will be aged over 65. Older people have shown what they can achieve when they set their minds to something, not least the appointment of the Older People's Commissioner and locally in Fermanagh the establishment of the Pensioner's Parliament."

"The issues raised by AGE NI in this campaign are of concern to many citizens right across the north; many older people feel the effects of fuel poverty, social care provision, and the fear of crime more than other sectors. They are right to highlight these issues and if elected to the Assembly I commit myself to speaking up for them and their rights."
