Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Sinn Féin - Leading the way to the Future

3 May, 2005

Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams MP was joined today by party colleagues Caitriona Runae, Alex Maskey and Gerry Kelly for the party's final press conference of the Westminster election campaign.

Mr Adams said:

"There is an unprecedented opportunity to revive the peace process, to get the Good Friday Agreement implemented and to get political power back into local hands so that we can tackle water charges, cuts in education and other essential services.

"This is a crucially important election. It is about the future -- the type of Ireland the electorate want. It is about the peace process and its success or failure. And it's about leadership.

"I believe the way forward that I have mapped out provides a real opportunity to revive the peace process.

"So there is a need to take power back into local hands and working together take the decisions which will determine the quality of life of our families and neighbours in the time ahead.

"On May 5th I am asking you to seize the opportunity and vote Sinn Féin." ENDS
