27 June, 2016 - by Martin McGuinness


Sinn Féin MLA Martin McGuinness has said political leaders have a responsibility ensure that democratic decision of the people of the North to remain in the EU is realised.

Mr McGuinness said;

"Sinn Fein made clear in the referendum campaign that a vote to leave would be bad for business, bad for citizens and bad for Ireland.

"We are now witnessing the fallout of the vote in Britain to leave the European Union.

"We are witnessing growing economic chaos, we are witnessing the leave campaign move their away from their lies and we are witnessing political turmoil in London.

"This is very much an evolving situation which will be played out over the coming years. What is clear is that the people of the north voted to remain in the EU.  

"As political leaders we have to work together to give effect to the democratically expressed decision of the people to remain in the EU and to put the needs of all our people and economy across Ireland to the fore.

"I will be meeting with political leaders including the Taoiseach, to discuss how we can give effect to the democratic wishes of the people to remain in the EU.”
