Co. Tipperary Possibly May Vote In Saturday’s General Election

There is a very strong possibility that the constituency of Co. Tipperary may be allowed to vote in next Saturday’s General Election.

The election in Co Tipperary, as our readers are aware, had been postponed following the tragic death yesterday, of Independent candidate Ms Marese Skehan.

However, we now understand that the Attorney General’s Office is tonight looking at legal arguments which could indicate that a delay in the Tipperary constituency could be interpreted as being unconstitutional, due to the fact that the Irish Constitution states that an election has to be held within 30 days of the dissolution of the Dáil. See HERE.

DÁIL ÉIREANN – ARTICLE 16

3 1° Dáil Éireann shall be summoned and dissolved as provided by section 2 of Article 13 of this Constitution.
2° A general election for members of Dáil Éireann shall take place not later than thirty days after a dissolution of Dáil Éireann.

Saturday, February 29th next had been observed as possibly the most likely date for the constituency of Co. Tipperary, to cast their vote.
