InfoAlex Maskey is from Andersonstown in West Belfast and is married to Liz with two children. He was elected the first republican Mayor of Belfast in 2002 and was widely acclaimed for the inclusive approach he adopted in carrying out his role. He was the first Sinn F驮 Councillor to be elected to Belfast City Council when he won a by-election in 1984.

Despite years of physical and verbal abuse inside the council chamber from Unionists and Loyalists he spearheaded our drive into City Council and we are now the largest party in Belfast. He has overcome two attempts on his life by loyalist murder squads and continues to be both a committed community activist and a senior negotiator for the party.

He is a key party strategist and was a member of the Sinn F驮 negotiating team. He is head of the West Belfast Partnership which is working for the economic development of the area.

He is a Sinn F驮 Councillor for Laganbank in South Belfast in 2001 and was elected as a peace negotiator in 1996. He was elected as Assembly member for West Belfast in 1998 and during the last Assembly he served as the party's Chief Whip. He served on several Assembly committees including the Finance and Personnel Committee and is a member of the party Ard Chomhairle. He has travelled extensively for the party at home and internationally to promote the Irish peace process.
