Alliance Leader David Ford MLA has said that attacks on elected representatives are an attack on democracy. His comments follow attacks on the offices and homes of Alliance representatives and the overnight attack on DUP Cllr Sammy Brush's home.
David Ford MLA said: "Any attack on an elected representative is an attack on democracy.
"These attacks must be unequivocally condemned by all.There can never be any attempt to offer reason for these attacks nor to justify the causes behind it.
"All politicians must show unity in their opposition to the recent attacks against my Alliance Party colleagues and now DUP Cllr Sammy Brush.
"I would like to assure Sammy that he is in the thoughts of the Alliance Party and we would like to offer him our full support."
