Elections

The Socialist Environmental Alliance (SEA) is a minor political party operating in Northern Ireland. Based largely in the city of Derry, they are a leftist organisation with Trotskyist leanings. The SEA has in the past benefited from the support of the Communist Party of Ireland and the Newtownabbey Labour Party, although the dominant organised group within it is the Socialist Workers Party.

The SEA contested the Northern Ireland Assembly 2003 election in the East Londonderry and Foyle seats (reflecting the party's Derry base). They polled poorly in East Londonderry, with candidate Marion Baur gaining only 137 first preference votes (only 0.4% of the total), although in Foyle Eamonn McCann managed to gain 2,257 first preference votes (5.5% of the total).

They also contested the European Parliament 2004 election, with Eamonn McCann their candidate. He managed to win 9,172 first preference votes, or 1.6% of the total cast. McCann then stood in the 2005 UK general election in the Foyle constituency, winning 3.6% of the vote.

McCann again stood for the organisation in Foyle in the Northern Ireland Assembly election, 2007.
