Congratulations to First Minister Michelle O’Neill

The Party of the European Left wishes to express its heartfelt congratulations to Michelle O’Neill assuming her rightful position as First Minister. This a very important step forward in Irish history. At last, the people’s will has been acknowledged. 

This historic achievement of Sinn Fein and all other Irish democrats is not only a very important step to Irish unity, but also a significant message to many in Europe and beyond. Dedication and ceaseless engagement for progress and the interests of the vast majority of the people have received their just recognition. Freedom, self determination and social progress are inseparable. And will prevail!
