Governments urged to set power-sharing example

Sinn Féin is urging the Irish and British governments to set an example of power-sharing for unionists to follow.

At a meeting of the Árd Comhairle in Dublin this afternoon, Sinn Féin accused the DUP of stalling the peace process in their failure to accept the fundamentals of the Good Friday agreement.

Sinn Féin Chairperson Mitchel McLaughlin said the two governments need to demonstrate power-sharing in practice.

Mr McLaughlin said: “We believe that unionism has demonstrated that they are incapable at this point in time, they do not have the leadership or the confidence in their leadership to step forward and form an executive.

"And we believe that the two governments, as well as putting a paper on the table, should also indicate what political action they are going to initiate that will actually demonstrate power sharing in practise.”
