IRISH REPUBLICAN NEWS: Adams returns to campaign
Adams returns to campaign
Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams MP returns to the campaign tomorrow with an extensive canvass in his West Belfast constituency following the death of his father earlier in the week.

In a statement, he said that `a vote for Sinn Féin is the best guarantee that there will be no renegotiation of the Agreement and that a strong and decisive Sinn Féin vote is a strong and decisive vote against the DUP and the rejectionists'.

Mr Adams said:

``The Sinn Féin peace strategy, and the endorsement of this by the electorate in growing numbers, has transformed our society. The DUP and rejectionists know this. That is why they have made Sinn Féin a central plank of their campaign.

``The strength of Sinn Féin's electoral support has made that difference. It delivers. For decades others failed to deliver change. They engaged in endless talks about talks. In our Local Councils, before Sinn Féin arrived, others accepted inequality, discrimination and second class citizenship, Sinn Féin Councillors did not. They confronted the bigots. They delivered change right across the six counties.

``A vote for Sinn Féin is the best guarantee that there will be no renegotiation of the Good Friday Agreement. A strong and decisive vote for Sinn Féin is a strong and decisive vote against the DUP.

``In this election we are asking people to endorse our work and to vote and transfer to Sinn Féin to maximise nationalist representation in the Assembly and the Executive and to return a Sinn Féin First or Deputy First Minister.''
