SF accused of giving DUP veto over nationalist ministers

10/12/2004 - 11:36:45

The SDLP has accused Sinn Féin of giving the Democratic Unionist Party a veto over the decisions of nationalist ministers as part of the deal to restore power-sharing.

The party claimed Sinn Féin had compromised the interests of Irish nationalists by focusing on protecting the self-image of the IRA in the negotiations that led to the deal.

Sinn Féin has rejected the charge, saying it had worked hard in the negotiations to defend the joint and equal nature of the first and deputy first minister and the North-South bodies.
