Ian Paisley speaking after the results of the recall petition thanked his supporters.
“In July I apologised for a mistake made almost six years ago.
The electorate was asked to pass judgment. 90.6% have accepted my apology.
The electorate has clearly spoken.
I would like to thank my true friends, family, the electorate who have stood by me with unwavering support. Hallelujah.”
Mr Paisley is currently serving a 30 day suspension after which the North Antrim MP will take up their seat again in Westminster.
