@Alasdair McDonnell (SDLP) 10,339 (32.3% +1.7%)
Jimmy Spratt (DUP) 9,104 (28.4%)
@Michael McGimpsey (UUP) 7,263 (22.7% -22.1%)
@Alex Maskey (Sinn Fein) 2,882 (9.0% +1.4%)
Geraldine Rice (Alliance) 2,012 (3.3% +0.9%)
Lynda Gilby (Vote for Yourself Rainbow Dream Ticket) 235 (0.7% +0.4%)
Patrick Joseph Lynn (Workers Party) 193 (0.6% +0.1%)

Probably the biggest upset of the election – Alastair McDonnell wins with 32% of the vote, DUP coming second, UUP losing half their vote from last time. Interesting that with no Women’s Coalition candidate, the total Nationalist vote goes up by 3% but the total Unionist vote by 7%. The SDLP survives after all, despite my predictions.

*@ Ian Paisley (DUP) 25,156 (54.8% +4.9%)
@Philip McGuigan (Sinn Fein) 7,191 (15.7% +5.9%)
Rodney McCune (UUP) 6,637 (14.5% -6.5%)
@Sean Farren (SDLP) 5,585 (12.2% -4.6%)
Jayne Dunlop (Alliance) 1,357 (3.0% +0.4%)

Similar shift of votes to the very different constituency of West Belfast, but no big surprise. Encouraging to see a minor up-tick in the Alliance vote.
