Taoiseach should act now to deliver all-island Oireachtas Representation – Ferris

19 September, 2007

Sinn Féin TD Martin Ferris has this morning called on the Taoiseach to honour his commitment to all-island representation in the Oireachtas now that he has publicly acknowledged the value of all-Ireland politics.

Deputy Ferris said today, "Oireachtas representation for 6-county citizens was committed to by the Taoiseach when his government signed the Good Friday Agreement nearly ten years ago.

"Irish citizens should not be denied their constitutional right to participate fully in the life of the Nation just because they were abandoned behind an artificial border imposed by a foreign power.

"If the intentions of the Fianna Fáil party to organise and seek a political mandate on a 32-county basis are genuine now is an opportune time for him to deliver on his government's commitment to all island representation in the Oireachtas." CRíOCH
