Refusal to deal with election date exposes coalition of chaos - Adams

9 October, 2015 - by Gerry Adams TD


Commenting on the current speculation around a date for the General Election, Sinn Féin Leader Gerry Adams said today:

"The intense media speculation around a date for the election is a distraction from the real issues that are bearing down on citizens at this time.

"However, the Taoiseach's refusal to deal with the issue and the obvious discomfiture of his Tánaiste Joan Burton does expose this Government as a coalition of chaos. 

"The fact is that Mr Kenny is focused on getting enough seats to ensure his re-election as Taoiseach.

"This is not the only issue for which Enda Kenny is not being straight with the Tánaiste. That is hardly surprising as he wasn't straight with the electorate and has broken every commitment he made after his Government was formed. 

"Michael McGrath was right when he said that the Government had adopted Fianna Fáil policy on the economy.

"What he failed to say was they obviously adopted Fianna Fáil policy on Health and have sustained the chaos in our health services as well as in housing, emigration and education."
