Moyle must continue to promote “power sharing”

14 01 2012

Dónal Cunningham has urged parties and political groupings on Moyle District Council to enter into the true spirit of power sharing and to consider very carefully the choices made for their uptake of the positions of Council chair and vice chair.
“We are faced with the prospect that Moyle District Council once a model of power sharing and co-operation unnecessarily entering three years of single identity representation.”
“The positions of chair and vice chair are the most visible sign of local democratic leadership,equality and inclusion and I am convinced that the local community want to see partnership working. Partnership threatens no one and will provide the basis for a stronger, more proactive democratic leadership, one closer to all sections of the community.
“The Council needs to be seen to be working in partnership in order to take advantage of very limited economic opportunities and deliver the best possible outcomes for the community giving confidence to local businesses, the voluntary and community sector.”
