Adams - This Election is about the future
Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams was today joined by the party's other three Belfast Westminster candidates, Alex Maskey, Deborah Devenny and Gerry Kelly as they handed in their nomination papers at the Electoral Office.Speaking to the media outside Mr Adams said:
"We take nothing for granted going into any election campaign. This one is no different. There are in my view seven winnable seats. It is far too early to call how we will do. At the last Westminster election we only won one of the seats we currently hold by 53 votes. So we have to go out and engage with the electorate on doors across the six counties.
" This is a crucially important election. This election is about the future. It is about the type of future people want and it is about who they want to lead them.. It is about the peace and it is about the type of Ireland we want to build. It is about leadership and giving leadership. It is also about the bread and butter issues - social and economic concerns which impact on peoples everyday lives." ENDS
