Sinn Féin will pursue with two Governments need for progress

12 January, 2006

Sinn Féin Vice President Pat Doherty MP today said today that his party would be pursuing with the two governments in the coming weeks the need for progress to be made in restoring the political institutions.

Mr Doherty said:

“ In recent weeks both governments have indicated a willingness to see urgent progress made in restoring the political institutions. Yesterday the British Secretary of State Peter Hain said that he wished to see dialogue been early next month.

“ Sinn Fein has been pressing for early progress to be made since the historic IRA initiative of last July. We are keen to see the process advanced and believe that the potential to see such progress does exist and we will be pursuing this with the two governments over coming weeks.

“ But the DUP need to begin to play their part in all of this. They need to finally show real political leadership. They need to begin to demonstrate an ability to share power with nationalists and republicans on the basis of equality and respect.” ENDS
