Former MP Michelle Gildernew will stand as one of three Sinn Féin candidates in next year’s assembly election for Fermanagh-South Tyrone.
A selection convention has decided which three candidates will run out of four contenders.
In addition to Ms Gildernew, the nominees are sitting MLAs Sean Lynch and Councillor John Feely.
The third sitting Fermanagh-South Tyrone MLA, Bronwyn McGahan, has confirmed that she will not be seeking nomination for next year’s election though she will see out the current mandate.
“I will continue my political activities as a Sinn Féin activist following the election and remain fully committed to the aims and objectives of the party,” Ms McGahan said.
“I want to thank everyone who have I worked with in the Assembly, in the constituency, and most importantly the people of Fermanagh and South Tyrone. It has been a privilege and an honour to represent them.
“I look forward to continuing to work on behalf of local people.”
Ms Gildernew lost the Westminster seat in May when she was defeated by the Ulster Unionist candidate Tom Elliott.
