A short message from Gay MitchellPosted October 24th, 2011
In the last General Election, 40 per cent of the people decided how to vote in the last week, 20 per cent on the last day. In previous Presidential Elections, which we all have difficulty remembering, the vote was even more volatile.
People will only now ask themselves who they want to succeed President McAleese. Take a look yourself at the seven candidates. At this crucial time in our country’s very real difficulties, I believe I have the breadth and depth of experience, but also the vigour and energy to join in leading our country to prosperity and happiness (as the 1916 Proclamation aspires). Votes are won in ones. Please leave no stone unturned in asking your family, friends, neighbours and anyone else you can influence. The decision will be made next Thursday. We can win this election.
Gay Mitchell, MEP
