Political drift can’t continue and democracy must be respected – O’Neill

First Minister Designate Michelle O’Neill said today that political drift in the north can’t be allowed to continue and the public should get the political leadership it demands and deserves.

And the Sinn Féin Leas-Uachtarán also said that the democratic outcome of the Assembly election must be respected and validated.

Michelle O’ Neill said:

“I want to work in partnership with the DUP and others to deliver public services and provide the much-needed political leadership the public demand and deserve.

“The democratic outcome of the Assembly election must be respected.  It must be validated.

“For not a month longer can this drift continue with nobody at the wheel while people lie crippled in pain waiting for treatment and surgery. 

“We need all those with a stake in our politics and this island including the two governments and all parties, not least the DUP, to get to work without delay and restore the institutions of the Good Friday Agreement and deliver for all our people.” CRÍOCH/ENDS
