The SDLP and the Alliance Party have selected their candidates to fight the South Belfast constituency, if a snap Westminster election is called.
The current MP is the DUP's Emma Little Pengelly.
Claire Hanna has been put forward by the SDLP, despite her resigning the whip earlier this year in protest at her party's link up with Fianna Fail.
The Alliance Party has nominated Paula Bradshaw in a constituency where 69.5% voted to remain in the EU Brexit referendum.
In 2017, Emma Little Pengelly won the seat with a majority of 2,000. Her closest rival was the SDLP's Alasdair McDonnell.
