DUP have to face up to the responsibility of political leadership

14 February, 2006

Sinn Féin Chief Negotiator Martin McGuinness MP today said that ‘it was vital progress was made in the coming period and that the DUP had to face up to the responsibility which comes with political leadership‘.

Mr McGuinness said:

“The two governments have already indicated that significant progress has to be made in the coming period. Efforts in regard to this will continue in the coming days.

“The current situation where we have an Assembly which has never met and British Direct Rule Ministers taking bad decisions is unsustainable and unacceptable.

“It has long since past the time when the DUP begin to stop hiding behind rhetoric and begin to accept the responsibility which is demanded from those in political leadership.” ENDS
