John Lowry

John Lowry is the General Secretary of the Workers' Party in Ireland. He is a native of the Lower Falls area of Belfast.

Lowry first stood for the Workers' Party in the Lagan Valley by-election, 1986. As the only candidate to challenge Jim Molyneaux of the Ulster Unionist Party, he picked up 9.3% of the vote. [http://www.electionsireland.org/candidate.cfm?id=5012 John Lowry] , ElectionsIreland.org]

Lowry stood again in Lagan Valley at the 1987 UK general election, but, facing several candidates, his vote dropped below 3%. For the 1992 UK general election he moved to contest Belfast West, and has contested this unsuccessfully at each subsequent election.

Lowry was also the Workers' Party's candidate in the European election, 1994, coming well down the field with only 0.45% of the votes cast. He topped the party's list in Belfast West for the Northern Ireland Forum election of 1996, and has contested the same seat at each election to the Northern Ireland Assembly.
