A role for the diaspora

One of the three pillar reforms of our campaign is for the diaspora to be given a recognized role in the life of our republic. There are numerous ways to do this, from granting citizens outside of the sate the right to vote in Presidential elections, as was recommended by the Constitutional Convention. The diaspora could also be recognised in a reformed Seanad, something that was overwhelmingly supported by the public in out public consultation on Seanad reform.

We are working to advance this part of our campaign through lobbying TDs and Senators on the recommendations of the Constitutional Convention and by raising awareness of the issue through the media.
