Presidential Election Must Be Held On Friday

Speaking in reaction to the Government's decision to hold the Presidential Election on a Thursday, Young Fine Gael (YFG) President, Eric Keane said: "It is bizzare that the Government would chose to hold the Presidential Election on a Thursday - a day when so many will be unable to vote.

"Election after election, year after year, both Fine Gael and Labour have consistently excoriated the previous government when they held elections on a Friday, never mind on a Thursday.

"This denies young people who will be in college and others who work away from home the chance to have their say in who will be our next President.

"Young people are entitled to vote, government after government have dis-enfranchised them. We are asking this Government to hold the election on the Friday and allow young people the opportunity to vote for their next President".

Ends.
