North Antrim General Election 2024 candidates in full

Eight candidates will battle it out to win your votes in the North Antrim constituency in the upcoming UK General Election.

As voters go to the polls on July 4, the DUP's Ian Paisley Jr will be hoping to retain his seat in parliament which he has held since replacing his father in 2010.

North Antrim is an overwhelmingly unionist seat. It first existed from 1885 to 1922. From 1886 to 1974 the Conservative and Unionist members of the United Kingdom House of Commons formed a single Parliamentary party.

In 2010 when Jim Allister announced that he would contest the constituency for the Traditional Unionist Voice, Paisley Jr was elected with a significantly reduced majority.

There is a strong possibility that the contest for the seat this year will in fact be between DUP and TUV rather than the UUP as in previous years.
