All election debates should be inclusive – Adams
Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams has said that all TV election debates should be fully inclusive of all political parties represented in the Dail.
Gerry Adams said:
“The three parties represented in tonight’s RTÉ leaders debate are united in their broad approach to the IMF/EU bailout for banks and on the agenda for cuts that will hurt ordinary working families and damage society.
“RTÉ, a publicly-funded broadcaster has a duty ensure that all election debates are open and inclusive.
“The exclusion of Sinn Féin from tonight’s debate is wrong.
“The electorate are entitled to hear all political views in order to make an informed decision.
