Anti-Democratic elements remove Sinn Féin Posters -Kelly
Sinn Fein North Belfast Assembly Candidate Gerry Kelly has described those who removed Sinn Féin election posters on Cavehill and Oldpark Roads as anti-democratic.
Mr Kelly said:
"The removal or interference with election posters is an attack on the democratic process. Political parties should be allowed to go about legitimate campaigning without intimidation or attack. It is significant that those responsible fear the rise of Sinn Féin as only our posters were removed.
"Those who did this obviously feel it will have some sort of negative impact on our campaign.
"I can assure them Sinn Féin has faced this type of anti-democratic attack at every election that I can remember and it has not prevented the continued growth of our party.
"The theft of our posters will have no effect on our campaign other than to make us more determined."
