The Seanad elections for the National University of Ireland and Trinity College panels are taking place by postal ballot at present. Registered voters will have received their ballots in recent days and all ballots must be returned to the relevant returning officers by 12noon on 31st March 2020.
Thare are 10 candidates running for three seats on the Trinity Panel and 19 candidates running for three seats on the NUI panel.
Senator Rónán Mullen is the only candidate between the two university panels (NUI and Trinity) who has publicly declared as pro-life and has a strong record of defending the right to life.
Separately there are a number of pro-life candidates running for the five Vocational Panels in the Seanad. Only serving public representatives have a vote for these panels. It’s important, if you know your local councillors, that you ask them to vote for candidate who will stand up for life in the Seanad elections.
The Pro Life Campaign has a policy of not endorsing individual candidates or parties but we strongly urge supporters to vote for and work to elect candidates who are pro-life and speak up for the right to life.
