Adams welcomes Abertzale Left progress towards party legalisation

1 December, 2010 - by Pat Sheehan, Westminster


Sinn Féin party president, Gerry Adams MP MLA, has welcomed the step taken by Abertzale Left to fulfil the requirement of the political parties law and the registration of a new party on this basis within the Basque Country.

 Speaking today Mr Adams said:

“Sinn Féin believe that the Albertzale Left leadership are wholly committed to both creating peace and to exclusively peaceful and democratic means for resolving political issues.

“We believe Arnaldo Otegi’s personal contribution to all of this has been significant.

“The Spanish Government should now release Arnaldo Otegi and give the Basque people, all of the Basque people, their right to vote for representatives of their choice.  The new party proposed by the Abertzale Left should be legalised.”
