Sinn Féin launches Party Political Broadcast on the web
Sinn Féin is launching its Party Political Broadcast for the Assembly election campaign on its website www.sinnfein.ie. As the only all-Ireland party in the election, Sinn Féin is calling on voters to back its strategy in the negotiations, its demand for equality and its campaign for Irish Unity.
The broadcast details the huge risks which republicans have taken for peace, the commitments secured from the British government on policing, criminal justice, equality, human rights and demilitarisation and the dialogue with Ulster Unionists, which is ongoing. It also commits the party to continue the work undertaken by Martin McGuinness and Bairbre de Brún in the Executive and Alex Maskey's work in reaching out to Unionism
It calls on the electorate to strengthen Sinn Féin's negotiating hand in the crucial talks, which will follow the elections, by voting Sinn Féin.
Narrating the broadcast is party candidate for South Down Caitriona Ruane.
