Meeth East TD Peadar Tóibín claimed that he was "censored" and "deceived" by Shin Fine Party leaders limited in his communications and engagements he dropped after 21 years.

He also warned that reforms were needed in the party, that party leaders "knew what the reforms were," and if they did not materialize, the party's problems would continue in the future. "

The pro-modern tournament, which was actively voting without a referendum on the eighth amendment, claimed to have been "deceived" by the party in the past 18 months and faced a series of challenges, including loss of speech rights and limiting media communications.

"I lost the rights of speech, the positions of the speaker, the censorship files, and I was censored in my contacts with the media," he said in a letter to the party that informed her of his decision to resign.

"These actions prevented me from fully representing my components."

He said that he promised a deal with the leadership in November 2012 that stated that the party "will treat me equally and will not be deceived by my views on the right to life as long as I also gave the party opinion."

However, he said that he was "significantly negating" the party's position on the contrary, and although "played on the path to the doors of management and leadership," he could not see any solution to the problem.

He was given six months suspension by the party after voting against abortion legislation.

Mr. Tóibín said: "There are subjects in the party that have to sort out".

He refused to continue with the necessary reforms, but said they were known from within.

"I have great appreciation for many TDs and representatives within the Fine Shin … I really wish them luck with the necessary reforms that should be made within the party – they know what these reforms are. But if they do not fix I will not be the last [to leave]," he said.

Asked about the allegations that the party had behaved inappropriately in the past, he said: "There are obvious problems in the organization, and these obvious problems must be solved, and I hope they will solve them because I want to see Xin Fein strong if they do not solve them. said.

Now he is planning to build a "new 32-community movement" and sign a desire to form a new party that would like to achieve united Ireland and "economic justice."

The leader of San Fein, Mary Lou MacDonald, said that "with remorse" that she heard about the resignation of "esteemed friend" Mr. Tóibín.

"Xin Fein is home to a variety of opinions: We argue with our friends and point to Bard's policy," she said.

"People voted to cancel the eighth amendment. There is a responsibility for all Shin Fine TDs to give an impact on the vote of the people," she said.
