Did you know that the original Irish Constitution of 1922 provided for Direct Democracy, whereby the people had the power to make, mould, amend and repeal their own laws, like they have in Switzerland?

I’ve just made the Reinstate 48 Pledge to support the restoration of Direct Democracy to the Irish Constitution. I hope you will too.

Hi,

Did you know that the original Irish Constitution of 1922 provided for Direct Democracy, whereby the people had the power to to make, mould, amend and repeal their own laws, like they have in Switzerland?

Check you this video; Article 48: The Brief History of Direct Democracy in Ireland.

I’ve made the Reinstate 48 Pledge to support the restoration of Direct Democracy to the Irish Constitution and I hope you will too.

Contact Candidates

Spread the Word by asking your preferred local candidate if they have taken the Reinstate 48 pledge?  If they answer yes, then let them know they’ll be getting your first preference vote. If they answer no, ask them why not?

Tell them if they want your vote then they will have to make the Reinstate 48 Candidate Pledge so that you too will have a vote in important issues that arise in the future (i.e. another Bank Bailout or the privatisation of Irish Water).

Below is script that you may wish to email to your preferred candidate.

Suggested Candidate Email Text

Dear [name of candidate],

I am writing to let you know that you are my first preference candidate at the next General Election.

Also that I’ve just made the Reinstate 48 Pledge to only vote for candidates who have also taken the Reinstate 48 Pledge to support the reintroduction of Article 48 into the Irish Constitution.

I looked for your name on the list of candidates who have made the Reinstate 48 Pledge on the Reinstate 48 website but did not find your name there.

http://www.reinstate48.ie/candidates/

Can you please let me know if you intend to make the Reinstate 48 Candidate Pledge?

Best wishes
[Your name]

To contact your preferred local candidate please visit one of the sites below:

Anti Austerity Alliance Fianna Fáil Fine Gael Green Party
Labour Party People Before Profit Alliance Renua Sinn Féin
Socialist Party Workers and Unemployed Action Group The Workers Party Oireachtas - Parliament

If there is a political party that we have omitted from the above list please email us at candidates@reinstate48.ie to let us know and we will add it to the list. Unfortunately the Reinstate 48 Team do not have the resources to maintain a current list of all Independents running in the next general election. However when you make the Reinstate 48 Candidate Pledge your name will appear on the list of candidates on the Reinstate 48 Candidate page.
