Lord Mayor of Dublin and Green Party chairperson Hazel Chu has confirmed she will seek the nomination for the Green Party seat in the forthcoming Dublin Bay South by-election

This morning.

“As someone who achieved 33 per cent of the vote in my constituency in the 2019 local elections and as current Lord Mayor of Dublin, I believe I can run a competitive campaign for the Dublin Bay South seat and for the party.

“I look forward to the selection convention and to the decision by my local group.”

“I have worked hard to support the local community and local businesses while working to fight the key issues we are facing as a country, homelessness and housing, discrimination and inequalities, climate change and ensuring a sustainable future.”

Mayor Chu is the Chair of the Green Party, but has announced she wants to run in the Seanad by-elections next month as an independent candidate.

She said:

“Though I am a Green member, I understand I am not endorsed by the party since the executive made the decision not to hold a selection convention. I also understand there is no pact in place with any other parties as confirmed by the leader at the last executive meeting. I am not looking for any support from the party since this was a personal choice to ensure that there is proper representation,”

“In the current climate, it is important to have women and minorities represented at this election. This choice, as I said, is a personal one, as is my candidacy. After spending the year speaking to children from all backgrounds that anyone can run for election I felt that it was essential I follow what I preach.

Over the next 10 days, until October 10, more than 17,000 women will do 10KM ‘their own way’ to raise funds for charities across Ireland.

Registration is still open here.

Lord Mayor of Dublin Hazel Chu claims Minister for Children Roderic O’Gorman is being bullied

Last night.

Lord Mayor of Dublin Hazel Chu responds to online criticism of her Green Party colleague Roderic O’Gorman and his ties to British human rights campaigner Peter Tatchell.

Ms Chu urged her followers to report ‘trolls’ who are posting ‘creatively-edited’ lies about Mr O’Gorman, the newly-apppointed Minister for Children, Disability, Equality and Integration.

Mr Tatchell had stated in a 1997 letter that friends as young as nine had sexual experiences with adults which gave them “great joy”.

This week, a tweet (top) from 2018 showing Mr O’Gorman with Mr Tatchell, who was guest of the Green Party at the Dublin Pride Parade, resurfaced.
