Sinn Féin - On Your Side

McGuinness - process is edging forward

18 November, 2006


Sinn Féin Chief Negotiator Martin McGuinness this morning said "On Monday myself, Gerry Adams and Michelle Gildernew will represent Sinn Féin at the Programme for Government committee.  There is a lot of work still to be done and I hope that this long overdue engagement will be genuine and that progress can be made on all of the outstanding issues without unnecessary delay. Nationalists and republicans will be watching what happens within this committee very carefully.”

 

Mr. McGuinness said:

 

“Nationalists and republicans won’t be unnerved by intemperate language from some within the DUP.  People see that the process is edging forward and that more progress can still be made, even in the run up to November 24th when it is expected that myself and Ian Paisley will be put forward by our respective parties. 

 

“What is at stake here is the re-establishment of the power-sharing and all-Ireland institutions and the implementation of the Good Friday Agreement. 

 

“On Monday myself, Gerry Adams and Michelle Gildernew will represent Sinn Féin at the Programme for Government committee.  There is a lot of work still to be done and I hope that this long overdue engagement will be genuine and that progress can be made on all of the outstanding issues without unnecessary delay.  Nationalists and republicans will be watching what happens within this committee very carefully.”ENDS
