The Return of Power

The Progressive Unionist Party believes that the form of devolved government to take Northern Ireland into the 21st century is one of Sharing Responsibility. Our party has promoted the concept of Sharing Responsibility since 1979 and it is our belief that this could provide the blueprint for the return of power to local government. Central government will only restore power to local authorities when it is convinced that power will not be abused. We believe that Sharing Responsibility is the form of government that could convince Central Government that power could be restored to local authorities in the Province without fear of abuse.

It is the belief of the Progressive Unionist Party that the cementing of a peaceful future can be advanced by the diverse traditions within our society together administering for all the people in an atmosphere of honour and transparency.
