Adams acknowledges new UUP leader Mike Nesbitt
Commenting on the election of Mike Nesbitt as the new UUP leader, Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams said
“I wish the new UUP leader well in his new role.
“In the last Assembly election the people sent out a clear message that they wanted the political institutions to work, that they wanted proper partnership government. The UUP have a central role to play in delivering that.
“The next UUP leader needs to concentrate on working the GFA political institutions for the benefit of all citizens in partnership with Sinn Fein and the other parties. Any attempt by the new UUP leader to move away from the powers sharing architecture with all the necessary checks and balances is a mistake.
