Belfast Pottinger (UK Parliament constituency)

Pottinger, a division of Belfast, was a UK parliamentary constituency in Ireland. It returned one Member of Parliament to the House of Commons of the United Kingdom from 1918 to 1922, using the first past the post electoral system; the constituency was created by the Redistribution of Seats Act 1918 from an area, in the Belfast East constituency. It comprised the south-western half of East Belfast, contained the Pottinger ward of Belfast Corporation, it was in use at the 1918 general election only, under the Government of Ireland Act 1920 its area was again part of the Belfast East constituency, with effect at the 1922 general election. The constituency was a unionist area, with some Labour support. Sinn Féin demonstrated republican weakness in the seat by receiving only 393 votes, in the 1918 election. After the 1918 election, Sinn Féin invited all those elected for constituencies in Ireland to sit as TDs in Dáil Éireann rather than in the House of Commons of the United Kingdom. All those elected for Irish constituencies were included in the roll of the Dáil but only those elected for Sinn Féin sat in the First Dáil.

In May 1921, the Dáil passed a resolution declaring that elections to the House of Commons of Northern Ireland and the House of Commons of Southern Ireland would be used as the election for the Second Dáil and that the First Dáil would be dissolved on the assembly of the new body. The area of Belfast Pottinger would have been represented in the Dáil by the four-seat constituency of Belfast East, which returned no representatives for Sinn Féin.
