We will use our mandate to deliver for all – Gerry Adams

Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams with Mary Lou McDonald, Michelle O'Neill and Órlaithí Flynn.

“The Sinn Féin vote in this election was for equality, respect and integrity in government" - Gerry Adams

GERRY ADAMS has said Sinn Féin will use its mandate from the Assembly election to deliver equality, integrity and respect for all. 

The Sinn Féin leader was speaking as he arrived at the Belfast count centre in the Titanic Exhibition Centre in Belfast. 

“The Sinn Féin vote in this election was for equality, respect and integrity in government," he said. 

“It was a vote against Brexit and for the north to have a designated special status within the EU.

“It is a vote for the return to the political institutions based on the agreements that have been made but not implemented," he added. 

The Sinn Féin President said Michelle O'Neill has now called on both the British and Irish governments to begin negotiations as soon as possible. 

“A step change is needed. There can be no return to the status quo.

“As Michelle O’Neill said in the campaign, what we win, we win for all. We will use our mandate to deliver for all in society," he said. 

He thanked everyone who voted for Sinn Féin and paid tribute to the leadership of Michelle O'Neill and Martin McGuinness. 

“I commend Michelle O’Neill for an energised and positive campaign. This was also a huge vote of thanks to Martin McGuinness, Bernie and the entire McGuinness clan," he said.
