The upcoming Westminster election is an opportunity to reject the reckless Tory/DUP Brexit and drive forward momentum for Irish unity, Sinn Féin MP Chris Hazzard has said.
Speaking after his selection as Sinn Féin candidate for South Down, the sitting MP said:
“With the chaos in Westminster continuing, the likelihood of an election is increasing everyday.
“That election will be our opportunity to reject the madness of the Tory/DUP Brexit and seize the moment to drive forward the momentum for Irish Unity.
“Sinn Féin is ready to fight that election and to seize the opportunity to unseat Brexiteer DUP MPs across the north.
“In the last Westminster election, the nationalist people sent a powerful message by turning its back on Westminster and returning seven Sinn Féin MPs, including an historic victory here in South Down.
“Given the catastrophe that Westminster is attempting to force upon our island it is vital that people here in South Down continue to show Dublin, Europe and the world that we still reject Brexit, borders and the DUP.”
