Blair Should Come Forward With Date

30 July, 2003

Responding to comments made today by British Prime Minister Tony Blair where he claimed he wanted to see the political institutions back up and running, Sinn Féin MP for Fermanagh & South Tyrone Michelle Gildernew said:

"The cause of the current difficulties in the process is the decision of Mr Blair to suspend the political institutions and cancel the Assembly elections at the behest of negative unionism.

"If he is serious about wanting to see a resolution to the current difficulties in the process then there is now a real need for him to come forward with a definitive date, without qualifications or conditions, for the Assembly elections to proceed." ENDS
