Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams has said he does not accept that his party will be in Opposition after the General Election.
On RTÉ’s This Week, he said there was a general dissatisfaction with political parties and Sinn Féin was different from other parties and there had not been a vote cast.
He appealed to people to look at the choices and said the 'conservative parties' of Fianna Fáil, Fine Gael and Labour had made all the wrong political choices.
He said his party had not supported the bank guarantee and said if in power, Sinn Féin would burn the bondholders.
He said ordinary citizens had been burdened with a debt crisis and he said if in government, he would bring in a new budget to reverse certain cuts to social welfare payments.
He reiterated that he would tell the IMF to ‘go home and take their money with them’.
He said he would not compromise on the issue if in coalition with another party.
He commented that as Sinn Féin was trying to gain fiscal responsibility for the six counties in Northern Ireland, Dublin was handing it over to Europe and the IMF.
