Each “chat” will maintain a strict format -

It will be limited to three mins (max) in total, and will run on news programmes throughout May and into early June.

The interviewer will ask the three questions in the 3 minutes.

Interviews will all be recorded over a limited number of days and will be selected at random to run over the run-up to June 7th.

These are the three questions:

  1. Are you running as a party or non party candidate and why?


  1. If elected, what do you commit to delivering to your electoral area?


  1. How do you propose to achieve your goals?
