Campaigning continues today in the General Election, with constitutional change and job creation among the issues to be highlighted. It is exactly one week to go to polling day and all parties and candidates are stepping up their efforts to woo the voters.
Labour will this morning publish its plan for a new Constitution, which is to be drawn up by a citizens’ assembly. Party leader Eamon Gilmore is due to canvass in the Louth constituency.
Enda Kenny will be in Cork, where a news conference will highlight Fine Gael’s NewERA infrastructure investment plan.
The party says it will help to create 20,000 jobs in the trade and construction sector. Fianna Fáil leader Michéal Martin will be campaigning in Wexford and Waterford.
The Green Party is planning to highlight the issue of how Independent TDs will affect the next Dáil.
It will also be premiering its party political broadcast, which is due to be transmitted on Saturday.
Sinn Féin will publish its proposals for developing the community and voluntary sector at a news conference in Fatima Mansions in Dublin.
Meanwhile, ICTU General Secretary David Begg has called on Fine Gael to explain references in its election literature to taking on vested interests who contributed to the economic crisis, ‘including the unions’.
Speaking on RTÉ’s Morning Ireland, Mr Begg said he believed that ICTU had a good working relationship with the party and he could not understand the reference.
