'Let the people decide' - Adams responds to Kenny
Commenting this evening on remarks by Enda Kenny that the next election will be a choice between a Fine Gael or Sinn Féin-led Government, Sinn Féin Leader Gerry Adams TD called on the Taoiseach ‘to resign and call an election and let the people have their say now.’
Teachta Adams said:
“The next election will be about the direction our society takes. Will it be more austerity and bad politics by the conservative parties or do we grasp the opportunity for new politics, for real change and a more transparent and accountable system of government?
“I believe that citizens want a change from the conservative politics of Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil and Labour and are open to voting for genuine republican politics.
“Since taking office Fine Gael and Labour under Enda Kenny’s leadership has stumbled from one debacle to another. Their policies have been rejected and the Government now faces widespread public anger.
“Government support has now been eroded beyond the point where they can claim a mandate for what they are doing.
“The Taoiseach should allow citizens to make a choice. He should resign and call a General Election. Let the people decide.”
