Gerry Adams to deliver keynote address to Sinn Féin MLAs at Stormont
Speaking in advance of a meeting tomorrow in Stormont of the newly elected Sinn Féin MLAs, Assembly Group leader Conor Murphy MLA has urged the British government to move speedily to lift the suspension of the political institutions.
Mr. Murphy said:
"On Wednesday almost half a million people voted for pro Agreement parties. The majority of the MLAs elected to the Assembly are for the Agreement and for the re-establishment of the political institutions. The British government must heed the voice of the people and lift the suspension of the political institutions.
"We met yesterday with the British Secretary of State Paul Murphy and we will meet with the Irish government this week. Both governments have much outstanding work to do. We are demanding that they implement in full their commitments on Human Rights, Equality, Policing, Justice and Demilitarisation.
"Sinn Féin will not be resting on our laurels. Our increased Assembly team will meet tomorrow in Stormont and we will continue with the work done over the past number of years in delivering on our agenda of change."ENDS
