So…what are the party’s views on abortion?
Our party has an open position on Abortion. In fact, we will be the only political party in Ireland and across Europe that has an open party position on Abortion. The reason for this is very simple, we do not believe party politics in Ireland has a place for issues of conscience.
We are in favour of investment in our water infrastructure. It has been allowed to decay for generations. Access to safe, clean water is a basic necessity of life. We fundamentally disagree with how water charges have been introduced and will continue to do so until Irish Water has been radically reformed, and public waste eliminated.
We believe in open politics. That means being open and transparent in every way. Sinn Féin fails to meet any standard of openness and transparency and on these fundamental grounds, we will not consider under any circumstance entering into a coalition agreement of any form.
