Statement by Seamus Healy TD 087-2802199
I have to-day nominated Deputy Maureen O’Sullivan for election to the post of Ceann Comhairle of the new Dáil. Deputy O’Sullivan was also nominated by several other independent deputies and members of small parties.
I believe that it is important to have a Ceann Comhairle who is not a member of any of the political parties. I am confident that Deputy O’Sullivan would be a scrupulously fair and competent Cathaoirleach of Dáil sessions.
Deputy O Sullivan was re-elected in the Dublin Central Constituency in General Election 2016. She was backed by the (Tony) Gregory Group.
I call on all Deputies to give their first preference vote to Maureen O’Sullivan on Thursday.
