Decision time for the DUP, public want action and positive leadership – O’Neill

First Minister Designate Michelle O’Neill has said it is decision time for the DUP and that the public demand action.

Speaking after the British Secretary of State announced plans to extend the deadline to form an Executive until 8 February, Michelle O’Neill said, “People have rightly had enough of the DUPs inaction. They need mature and positive leadership focused on delivering for them.

“My message to the DUP is to work with us, get round the Executive table and make a difference to people’s lives.

“Thousands of public sector workers educating our children, caring for patients in our hospitals and running our transport services are once again being forced to take industrial action for the pay rises being denied to them.

“It is time for action. Workers and their families cannot be left in the lurch any longer. The DUP leader should do the right thing and restore the democratic institutions.”
