‘Sinn Féin will support efforts to return Remain candidates’ – O’Neill
Sinn Féin Leas Uachtarán Michelle O’Neill has confirmed that the party will look positively at any opportunities to unseat Brexiteer DUP MP’s in the expected Westminster election.
Michelle O’Neill commented: “The pending Westminster election comes at a time of exceptional political crisis and unprecedented economic threat driven by the disastrous Brexit project.
“The DUP are cheer leaders for that project.
“We have a unique opportunity to democratically reject that disastrous agenda and once again show Dublin, London, Europe and the world that the DUP do not speak for the majority.
“Remain candidates could unseat DUP Brexiteers in North, South and East Belfast. Returning remain MPs in all four Belfast constituencies would send a powerful message that we reject the DUP/Tory Brexit.
“I am contacting the other pro-Remain parties to discuss how we can best maximise the pro-Remain result and unseat Brexiteer DUP MPs.”
