Mr McCartney said; 

"There are clear rules 
governing posters and flags 
at polling stations
and it is important 
these are adhered to. 

"I know a number of voters 
raised concerns that they 
felt intimidated by 
the presence of flags 
at a polling station in Newbuildings at last 
year's Westminster election. 

"Following these complaints that polling station has now been moved back to its 
original location and I think that is the correct decision. 

"It is important that people can exercise their democratic right to 
vote at polling stations free from fear and intimidation." Ends/Críoch
