Maskey - Battle within Unionism

12 December, 2003


Commenting on the ongoing battle within unionism, South Belfast Sinn Féin Assembly member Alex Maskey has said that two weeks on from the election 'neither Jeffery Donaldson or the DUP have yet produced a credible plan for the future'.

Cllr. Maskey said:

" Whatever about the ongoing battle within the UUP what we can be sure about is the fact that two weeks on from the election neither Jeffery Donaldson or the DUP have been able to produce a credible plan for the way ahead.

" The two governments now have a crucial role to play in all of this. They must move ahead with a pro-Agreement agenda and make it clear to the rejectionists that they will not be allowed to block forward movement.

" Donaldson and the DUP need to recognise that the vast majority of people who voted in the election voted to support pro-Agreement parties and they returned a majority of pro-Agreement MLAs to the Assembly." ENDS
