Constituency Details
This constituency extends from the shores of Strangford Lough to Belfast suburbs but, despite its name, does not contain the town of Strangford.

Strangford takes in most of Ards District Council, parts of Castlereagh District Council and the Saintfield area of Down District Council.

In 2007, the DUP held four of the Assembly seats here with the UUP and Alliance one each.

Ken Reid
The DUP won four seats here last time out. Boundary changes will make this more difficult, with the UUP hoping to win back a seat through Mike Nesbitt. But the SDLP and Alliance party will also have a say.
