Green Party candidate selections

Adrian Kavanagh – updated on 9th February 2011

Like Fianna Fail the Green Party were slow in formally ratifying candidates to contest the next general election in the different constituencies. In the 2007 contest the Green Party contested all 43 constituencies and ran two candidates in Dublin North but appeared likely to be running fewer candidates in the upcoming contest, however a host of late selections meant that the party now have selected candidates in most of the constituencies, with just three constituencies at present left without Green Party candidates. Update: It has now been confirmed that the Green Party will contest every constituency.
