The Government must go – Adams
Speaking at a press conference in Dublin today as Pearse Doherty arrived at Leinster House to take the Dáil seat he won in the Donegal South West by-election Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams said:
“The people of Donegal South West have clearly endorsed Sinn Féin’s proposals for a better, fairer way forward. They have signalled that the Government must go.
“This Government has no mandate to impose the terrible deal it has negotiated with the IMF and EU.
“The interest payments alone will cripple our public finances for years.
“Any new government should refuse to honour the terms of the IMF/EU deal and Sinn Féin will seek a mandate in the General Election to renegotiate it.
“I want to congratulate Pearse Doherty and the electorate of Donegal South West. There would not have been a by election if Pearse had not gone to the High Court.
“Sinn Féin has positive and practical proposals to reduce the deficit and to develop the economy in a fair and sustainable way.
“We will continue to promote these policies but our intention in the short term will be to try and bring about a General Election as soon as possible. This Government must go.”
