On Saturday, the people of North Down elected Green Party leader Steve Agnew an Assembly member. After a grueling 2 day, 11 round Single Transferable Vote count, Steve squeezed in to the 6th and final place in the Assembly. While there was a Green in the seat, he had been a long standing independent councillor before his election. Many see Steve’s election as the first time Greens have truely claimed a seat in Stormont. This is Steve’s emotional victory speech (via Adam McGibbon)
