Adams calls for two yes votes
Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams has called on voters to come out in huge numbers this Friday to support the abolition of the Seanad and the establishment of a new Court of Appeal.
Deputy Adams delivered a message to voters today from Leinster House where he said Sinn Féin voters could make a real difference in this referendum.
“Sinn Féin is calling for two yes votes in this campaign, one for the establishment of a new Court of Appeal and another for the abolition of the Seanad.
“Sinn Féin voters can make a real difference in this campaign and so I am calling on our voters to come out in huge numbers.
“The Seanad has been shown to be undemocratic and elitist, a plaything for past governments and a rubberstamp for government legislation. The vast majority of ordinary people are not allowed to vote in Seanad elections. We cannot stand over this institution. It must be abolished.”
