Selection Convention for Cork North Central to be Held Tonight

Selection Convention for Cork North Central to be Held Tonight

Sinn Féin will hold a selection convention for the Cork North Central constituency tonight at 7.30 at the party offices in Barrack Street.

Cllr Jonathan O’Brien, who is seeking a nomination from the convention, said:

“I will be putting my name forward for selection and am hoping to be endorsed by my colleagues tonight.

“Sinn Féin will be fighting to win at the next election in Cork North Central. We are the party best positioned to take a seat from Fianna Fáil and give a strong, left-wing voice to the people of Cork’s Northside.”

“The next election will give people an opportunity to give its verdict on the Government’s handling of the economy and on its plans to cut €3billion out of the economy, primarily from the pockets of those who can least afford it.

“Both Fine Gael and Labour share the Government’s view that €3billion or more needs to be cut from the economy. Sinn Féin is the only party offering an alternative that would see us stimulating the economy rather than contracting it. We are the only party that wants to overhaul the taxation system to ensure everybody pays according to their ability to pay and that we finally rid ourselves of tax loopholes that deny us millions every year.

“We want to protect the most vulnerable in society while others look to them first to pay for the economic mess.”

“We have been screaming jobs, jobs, jobs for the last two years while the Government has been focussed on bailing out zombie banks. Both Labour and Fine Gael have belatedly got the message that the economy needs employment but the Government parties have yet to catch on.

“Sinn Féin is offering a real alternative. We offer a better and fairer way our of recession.

“We will go into the next election with confidence. We are in it to win it.”
