Adams - Election website will be crucial to Sinn Féin success

7 November, 2003

Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams MP and South Belfast Representative Alex Maskey this morning launched the party's Assembly election website on the Ormeau Road in Belfast. Mr. Adams said that the site would be an important way of encouraging young people, many of whom were turned off by the cancellation of the election last May, to come out and vote. It will also be a valuable tool in getting our message to the voter uncensored."

Mr. Adams said:

"Since its launch during the summer, the Sinn Féin website has been going from strength to strength. In three months there have been more than three milliion hits on the site and hundreds of people from right across the country have joined Sinn Féin on-line.

"The election site will be critical to our election campaign and will be an important tool in reaching people across society but in particular young people and voters who are following the campaign from abroad.

"The site contains extensive information on all aspects of our election campaign including candidate profiles, constituency information, campaign literature, party political broadcast and policy information. The election newsroom is updated several times daily. People can also join the party or help local election teams during the campaign.

"During the course of the campaign we will also have exclusive behind-the-scenes video clips which will be carried on the Irish Republican Media news service.

"We will also have extensive coverage when we go to the polls on November 26th and from the count centres across the north on November 27th. This will include regular updates from senior party figures, candidates and party activists at the count centres."ENDS
