Gerry Adams and Martin McGuinness to lead Stormont Sinn Féin delegations
Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams and Chief Negotiator Martin McGuinness will l ead the party delegations in both the Assembly meeting and the Programme for Government Committee tomorrow in Stormont. Speaking today after a party meeting in Belfast Mr McGuinness said:
"Gerry Adams and myself will lead the Sinn Féin delegations in both the Assembly meeting and the Programme for Government Committee tomorrow in Stormont. Sinn Féin will be approaching both meetings with the serious intention of moving forward the agenda set out by the governments at St. Andrews.
"All of the parties including the DUP know what is required of them in the coming weeks. The Programme for Government meeting provides an opportunity for the DUP to engage in real politics and seek out effective solutions to the issues which remain to be resolved.
"Clearly up until now the DUP have been reluctant participants in this process. However Sinn Féin are keen to get down to the business of working with them in sorting out serious issues like the timetable for the transfer of power on policing and justice and the departmental model. But resolving these matters will require the DUP to display the necessary political will in the days and weeks ahead." ENDS
