"Change the face of politics''

AT SINN FEIN'S FINAL press conference before Thursday's Westminster election Gerry Adams, Pat Doherty and Martin McGuinness called on the nationalist people of the Six Counties ``to change the face of politics'' and vote for Sinn Fein candidates across the board.

Adams said that, ``west of the Bann the nationalist electorate know that they have the ability to change the face of electoral politics and the election of Sinn Fein MPs will send a resounding message to the incoming British government that inclusive talks and honest negotiations, based on equality, are essential to the ending of conflict.

``Thursday's election will be a turning point which can change the face of electoral politics on this island. On Thursday voters have a choice between the hopeless politics of the past or of moving forward into a hopeful new future''.
