We're going to have our first by-election of the 2017 parliament, as Barry McElduff of Sinn Fein has resigned his West Tyrone seat after the fallout of a video he posted that appeared to mock the victims of the IRA Kingsmill Massacre.

It's more than likely that Sinn Fein will still hold the seat in the by-election, they won 50% of the vote in the General Election so it would be surprising if they lost it. There has been early rumblings of a "unity" candidate being run against Sinn Fein, although unlike previous pacts, instead of a unionist candidate it would be a non-partisan, cross community candidate to represent all victims of the conflict in Northern Ireland. Not very likely to happen though.

As itís a strong nationalist seat I doubt theyíre be much change but nevertheless itíll be interesting to see how the confidence and supply deal with the Tories will affect the DUP!
