O’Neill ‘honoured to be nominated as new Leas Uachtarán Shinn Féin’
Sinn Féin Leader in the North Michelle O’Neill said tonight that she looks forward to working as incoming Leas Uachtarán Shinn Féin with the new Uachtarán elect Mary Lou McDonald.
Michelle O’Neill said:
“I am honoured to be nominated as the new Leas Uachtarán of Sinn Féin. I look forward after the Special Ard Fheis to work with our new party President Mary Lou McDonald and wider national leadership team.
"We are entering a new political era and Sinn Féin will continue to be on the frontline leading positive change to improve the daily lives of ordinary people across Ireland.
"Sinn Féin wants to be in government north and south to deliver high quality public services on the basis of equality, rights and prosperity.
“We will continue to work against the twin threats of Brexit across the whole island, and British Government austerity in the North.
“Our priority is to continue the growth and development of Sinn Féin as a national political movement for Irish Unity and an agreed Ireland.”
