'I love Arlene,

0:00:110:00:13

'and she has 100% from me.

0:00:130:00:16

'Yeah, well, she's one of the people.'

0:00:160:00:18

A few months ago, I was elected as your First Minister.

0:00:180:00:22

On Thursday, I'm asking you to support and vote

0:00:220:00:25

for your local DUP candidate

0:00:250:00:27

so that I can implement my vision for Northern Ireland.

0:00:270:00:31

People ask me, "If we vote for your party,

0:00:310:00:34

"what are you going to do for us?"

0:00:340:00:36

I have a five-point plan for a stronger, safer Northern Ireland

0:00:360:00:40

but I need your support to implement it.

0:00:400:00:42

I've a plan to employ more nurses and doctors,

0:00:420:00:45

create more and better jobs,

0:00:450:00:47

and ensure that all schools are treated fairly,

0:00:470:00:50

with no favourite sectors. But I can only deliver it with your support.

0:00:500:00:54

I've travelled to every part of Northern Ireland,

0:00:540:00:57

I've listened to your concerns,

0:00:570:00:59

and that's why my plan will ensure there's more spending on new roads,

0:00:590:01:02

schools and hospitals, and investment in better broadband.

0:01:020:01:06

I know family budgets are tight in Northern Ireland -

0:01:060:01:09

that's why I pledged that, as your First Minister,

0:01:090:01:12

I will keep household taxes low.

0:01:120:01:14

Bye-bye. See you. Bye-bye, darling.

0:01:140:01:17

This is not a time for the untried or the untested.

0:01:170:01:20

This is a time for experience and stability.

0:01:200:01:23

Whilst I'm one of the youngest party leaders,

0:01:230:01:26

I have an unrivalled track record of delivery.

0:01:260:01:29

I helped convince investors from all over the world

0:01:290:01:32

to bring jobs to Northern Ireland.

0:01:320:01:34

Our target was 25,000, and we delivered 42,000.

0:01:340:01:39

I worked with our superb hospitality sector to deliver

0:01:390:01:43

a better tourist experience.

0:01:430:01:44

Just look at the success of the Titanic building.

0:01:440:01:47

I also ensured Northern Ireland attracted world-class events,

0:01:470:01:51

like the MTV Awards and the Giro d'Italia.

0:01:510:01:54

On Thursday, you have a choice.

0:01:540:01:56

You can vote for people with no plan and no record of delivery,

0:01:560:01:59

or you can vote for my candidates

0:01:590:02:01

and give me the mandate to lead Northern Ireland

0:02:010:02:04

in the right direction.

0:02:040:02:06

I'm here on Rathlin Island.

0:02:060:02:08

They can't vote for me personally

0:02:080:02:10

but, just like you, they can vote for their local DUP candidate.

0:02:100:02:14

Your vote will decide which party has the most MLAs,

0:02:140:02:18

and who the next leader of Northern Ireland will be.

0:02:180:02:21

With virtually no difference between the DUP and Sinn Fein

0:02:210:02:24

in the latest polls, this will be a close election.

0:02:240:02:26

My plan can only be delivered if the DUP is the largest party

0:02:260:02:31

and I am First Minister.

0:02:310:02:34

On Thursday, I'm asking you to make

0:02:340:02:36

the right choice for Northern Ireland

0:02:360:02:38

and to vote for strong leadership and a better future.
