The potential presidential election is certainly heating up, with more contenders stepping forward and the range of commentary concerning the functions and conduct of the Office of President and the holders of the highest office in the State.
Latest surprise potential Candidate to emerge is journalist Gemma O’Doherty. Gemma O’Doherty’s opening salvo is stirring stuff, referring to Ireland as a broken State, continuously and repeatedly allowing the same mistakes to be made over and over again, over consecutive decades, commenting on unimaginable suffering and chaos that so many people are subject to on a daily basis.
Quite interestingly Gemma O’Doherty contends that It is the duty of the Head of State to protect the Constitution and the rights of Citizens enshrined in it, especially in times of national crisis! Regretfully no explanation of what exactly this would involve is expounded by Gemma O’Doherty.
