Now that the General Election is over, I am asking the people of Ireland to start a conversation about real reform of the Seanad so it is now longer a resting place for those who did not get elected to the Dáil. There is no provision in Legislation for the Seanad to be divided along political lines, there should be no Government and opposition sides. There there should be real democracy. Let’s get this conversation started today!
Isn’t it time we reformed the Seanad ?
Senator Gerard Craughwell is Ireland’s’ newest and only independently elected Senator. He is deeply committed to Seanad Reform, Education and the Labour Movement.
