1986 North Antrim By-Election leaflet from Ian Paisley -DUP February 10, 2017

From the 1986 North Antrim By-Election a leaflet from Ian Paisley of the DUP. Paisley won 97.4% of the vote!

It was one of the fifteen 1986 Northern Ireland by-elections held on 23 January 1986, to fill vacancies in the Parliament of the United Kingdom caused by the resignation in December 1985 of all sitting Unionist Members of Parliament (MPs). The MPs, from the Ulster Unionist Party, Democratic Unionist Party and Ulster Popular Unionist Party, did this to highlight their opposition to the Anglo-Irish Agreement. Each of their parties agreed not to contest seats previously held by the others, and each outgoing MP stood for re-election.
