All political parties need to work together constructively on Europe - O'Dowd
Sinn Féin MLA John O'Dowd has said all political parties need to work together constructively to ensure the future place of the North in Europe.
Mr O'Dowd said;
"The people of the North clearly voted to remain in the European Union in the recent referendum.
"They made a positive choice and that needs to be respected and recognised by everyone.
"The negativity coming from a former SDLP leader is counterproductive and political opportunism.
"What we need to see now is responsible leadership with all parties and wider civic society working together in a constructive manner to make sure that the democratic will of the people of the North is respected."
