Duffy secures presidential nomination

Businessman Gavin Duffy is officially in the race for the Presidential Election after securing his nomination today with the backing of a fourth local authority.

Waterford Council endorsed Mr Duffy as a candidate adding to the nominations the Julianstown resident had already received from Meath, Carlow and Wicklow.
He is the third candidate to get the backing of four local authorities and joins businessman Sean Gallagher and Senator Joan Freeman on the ballot for 26th October.

A sitting president can nominate themselves to seek a second term and President Michael D Higgins has already indicated he intends to run.

 

Sinn Féin has also indicated it will nominate a candidate, but has not yet announced their candidate.
