He believes that it will extend to right to vote in the Presidential election to people in the North of Ireland as the Provisions of the Bill state the purpose of the bill includes
“the opportunity for those not resident in the State of Ireland but citizens of the State of Ireland to vote in Presidential Elections”,
The actual text to be inserted into the constitution Part 2 states ” Every Citizen who has the right to vote at an election for members of Dail Eireann regardless of their residency shall have the right to vote at an election for President.”
Does this mean as the right to vote extends to British citizens and Irish Citizens that these people can vote in the Presidental Election. That would be an interesting developement.
