McGurk in challenge to unionist candidate

Roisín McGurk, the Sinn Féin candidate in next week's by-election in Newtownabbey, was joined on her canvass at Glengormley Chapel by party president Gerry Adams on Saturday, 21 May.

McGurk has called on her Ulster Unionist opponent, Jean Crilly, to ``advise voters as to where she stands on the Agreement'', given the disagreements that exist within unionism over the way forward.

``It is clear from the feedback that I have been getting on the doorsteps that the most pressing issue for voters is the future of the peace process,'' said McGurk. ``People want to see the development of an environment conducive to a lasting peace and they see the Good Friday Agreement as the only means of making that possible.''
