Pro-Life Senator Rónán Mullen writes:
As you know, I am encouraging people to vote ‘NO’ to the abolition the Seanad. It is not the political reform we need and it would do more harm than good to our democratic system. If you haven’t voted yet today, please register your opposition to what the Government is doing.
I’d also like to mention that, in any event, I intend to be an independent candidate in the European Elections next year for the constituency of Midlands North West. I have been reluctant to declare this during the present campaign lest it be wrongly portrayed as undermining my arguments for retaining the Seanad. It has been my intention for some time to run for the European Parliament. I’d like you to know that this applies regardless of tomorrow’s result.
The make-up of the Euro-constituency will be: the Connacht-Ulster counties plus Longford, Westmeath, Laois, Offaly, Meath, Louth and Kildare.
I would be very grateful for your support in that campaign and for your involvement in whatever way you see fit.
