An Coimisiún Toghcháin has published its first draft research programme and held an associated public consultation between 10 November 2023 and 12 January 2024. During this time, the public and other interested parties were encouraged to share their views on the Draft Research Programme.
The closing date for submissions has now passed and submissions will be published in due course.
The report is organised around thematic strands (see Section 3) reflecting An Coimisiún’s functions under the Electoral Reform Act.
The submissions received during the public consultation period will contribute to ensuring that An Coimisiún’s research has a real and positive impact on Ireland’s voters, the Irish electoral system and Ireland’s democracy.
