Editorial: For the fourth time the MLAs at Stormont have debate marriage equality for gay men and women within its chamber. The vote has got closer, but still we do not have parity with the other areas of the United Kingdom
How MLAs voted:
Aye: 47, No: 49. Three Alliance Party MLAs abstained: Judith Cochrane, Trevor Lunn and Kieran McCarthy. Four unionist MLAs voted in favour of the motion: John McCallister (UUP), Danny Kinahan (UUP), Basil McCrea (NI21), Claire Sugden (independent)
Please remember to ask your candidates how they voted, and make an informed decision before you vote at the elections.
