Waterford’s Green TD urges party members to back coalition deal
Local Green TD Marc O’Cathasaigh has joined his elected Dáil colleagues and made an impassioned plea for party members to vote in favour of the new Programme for Government with Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael.
Today is the last day that members of the Green Party, Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael can vote on whether or not to support the new ‘programme for government,’ with the count to be completed by Friday.
Then we will know if the three parties are in a position to form a new government,
Deputy O’Cathasaigh, in a post on his Facebook page, urged local members to support the new ‘Our Shared Future’ deal he believes “will be hugely positive and transformative for rural Ireland”.
In the document which calls for a ‘Yes’ vote, Deputy O’Cathasaigh and his colleagues address all the areas of concern for their members, from housing and farming, carbon emissions, regeneration of rural areas, town regeneration, rural and public transport, and renewable energy,
The Waterford TD added: “As Green Party elected representatives based in the regions, we are voting YES for the Programme for Government ‘Our Shared Future’.
“We’re asking Green Party members to do the same as we believe it will be hugely positive and transformative for rural Ireland,” Deputy O’ Cathasaigh concluded.
