Ó hÓisín slams PUP candidate’s comments

1 Mins read

Sinn Féin candidate for East Derry Cathal Ó hOisín has said that development and investment needs to be done on a basis of need rather than a religious headcount.

Responding to a claim from the PUP that the Nationalist community get rewarded with major social housing projects and community centres Mr. Ó hOisín said,

“I am disappointed that the PUP have attempted to sectarianism the issue of deprivation, homelessness and unemployment in what is clearly an attempt to garner votes come the election.

“All developments and investments have to be delivered on a basis of need rather than along lines of division outlined by the PUP and Sinn Féin works on delivering for the entire community by tackling deprivation no matter where it sits.

“I would however agree that the British Government has failed to live up to their commitment under the Good Friday Agreement by reneging to deliver a Peace dividend so all political parties including the PUP should unite in putting pressure on them to live up to their responsibilities so we can use the money to lessen the impact of British Tory austerity.”
