Winners and Losers at the elections… 3 June 21, 2019

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.

RTÉ’s Your Politics podcast covered ‘Who won the election’. One point of particular interest was how strongly the Independents polled in the Local and European elections. They still retain a good 20 per cent of the votes cast. What that suggests is that they will return in some numbers to the next Dáil. However the complexion of those TDs will perhaps be skewed more to the right. That cannot but assist in government formation next time out.

The consensus was that Independents who have been a more substantial presence since the 1990s, albeit that waxed and waned (2007 being a particularly bad election for them) are set to stay.
