General Election 2017: Full list of candidates

Credit: Presseye

The full list of Northern Ireland candidates for the upcoming election has been published with 109 people contesting the 18 Westminster seats up for grabs on 8 June.

Sinn Féin, the SDLP and Alliance are putting forward candidates in every constituency, while the DUP are standing in 17, the UUP in 15 and both the Greens and Conservatives are running in seven.

The TUV and CISTA (Citizens Independent Social Thought Alliance) each have a single candidate.

There are four independents running, including sitting North Down MP Sylvia Hermon.

June's poll could see several seats change hands, with Sinn Féin eyeing the seat Tom Elliott holds by a slim majority in Fermanagh South Tyrone and Naomi Long hoping she can reclaim Belfast East for Alliance.

The battles for North Belfast and South Down could also be closely fought with Sinn Féin fairing well in both in this year's Assembly elections.
