Sinn Fein plans reshuffle

It has been reported (see RTE also) that Sinn Fein is planning a major reshuffle of its party leadership, with greater prominence being given to southern representatives, in particular MEP Mary Lou McDonald.

Gerry Adams will remain as Party President, but current Vice-President Pat Doherty will step down, with Mary Lou McDonald set to replace him.

Following Sinn Feins embarrassing electoral problems in the Republic, in 2007, the party appears to be trying to re market itself south of the border, in order to make it more appealing to voters. This is most likely in effort to make the party look less ‘northern’. A potential threat comes from Fianna Fail, if they decide to organise in British six-counties of Ulster.
