Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Adams - Sinn Féin is ready for government, north and south

29 April, 2007


Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams speaking in Belfast this morning said “Sinn Féin is going into this election campaign in a stronger position than every before.  Over the next four weeks we will be campaigning the length and breadth of the country seeking a mandate for real change and equality. Our objective is to be in government, north and south and to deliver strong public services and to advance the peace process and preparations for Irish unity.’

 

Mr. Adams said:

 

“Sinn Féin is going into this election campaign in a stronger position than every before.  We are standing 41 candidates and our objective is to be in government, north and south.

 

“We believe in the right to universal access to decent healthcare, education and childcare, we believe in the constitutional right to a home, we believe in building the economy and using the wealth created for the public good.  We believe in Irish re-unification and are advancing preparations to bring this about as soon as possible. These are our priorities for government.

 

“Over the past decade, republicans have proven our ability not just to negotiate successfully to advance the peace process but also to show leadership by taking major and sometimes difficult decisions in the national interest.  Dramatic progress has been made.  Sinn Féin and the DUP are going to head the power-sharing government in the north and Sinn Féin’s five Government Ministers will work hard in the interests of everyone on this island.  We are about delivering for Ireland’s future.

 

“Sinn Féin is ready for government, north and south. Over the next four weeks we will be campaigning the length and breadth of the country seeking a mandate for real change and equality. “ENDS
