Kearney thanks voters for endorsing Sinn Féin’s resolve to deliver progressive politics
Sinn Féin’s national chairperson, Declan Kearney MLA, has thanked voters for renewing the party’s mandate to continue delivering on progressive politics.
Declan Kearney said,
“I want to extend sincere thanks to all of those who came out and voted for me in South Antrim, and for our party across the north, endorsing the Sinn Féin message.
“Sinn Féin went forward in this election seeking a mandate for the Remain position; for progressive politics; for anti-sectarianism, and also a vote which would positively influence the future constitutional direction of our island.
“Brexit has changed everything. It has now started a political debate in Ireland, both north and south, about the future constitutional direction of the island.
“Sinn Féin believes that should be towards the creation of a new and agreed Ireland, which is free from division and sectarianism, and based upon reconciliation; and, in which the rights of all identities, cultures and traditions will be protected in law.
“Every vote cast for Sinn Féin in this election was also a vote for a rights-based return of the political institutions.
“All of these positions have been vindicated by everyone who voted for the party in this election.
“Sinn Féin has been strengthened in our resolve to continue the work of promoting and delivering progressive politics for all citizens.”
