A Group of Social Democrats members call for party leadership contest

https://jrnl.ie/5504332

hard to decipher much from the article or indeed the Statement. What exactly do the letter writers want?

Are there internal issues within the party causing some strain? Is this after the poor performance in the Dublin Bay South by-election?

Judging by the social media reaction to the statement, it seems there is little griping about the actual leaders, more that they feel the grassroots are being bypassed in the actual electoral process, and they wanted Shortall and Murphy ratified by the whole membership, rather than just TDs.

more that they feel the grassroots are being bypassed in the actual electoral process

Having gone along to an initial SD meeting out of curiosity (spoiler alert: focus-grouping run by twenty/thirty-something parliamentary advisors) I’m just surprised that anyone actually thinks that there’s an electoral process involved anywhere here.
