The Sinn Féin leader Gerry Adams has revealed that he may may not lead the party into the next general election.
Mr Adams says his long standing political career may finish before the Irish public take to the polls the next time around. Mr Adams told reporters that he intends on retiring soon and will stay in charge for the time being, but the length of his tenure depends on a number of matters.
The Sinn Fein leader further explained: “Well, for as long as the party wants me, for as long as my family allow me, for as long as my health permits me,” he said.
“We’re just out of an election in the North, we have this election, it’s a very consuming, intensive, ongoing business.”
