Election monitors during COVID-19

A couple of words on the status of overseas election monitoring from Ireland’s perspective.

In 2020, I noticed that there were over fifty different parliamentary questions on many separate occasions about Ireland’s overseas election monitors. These volunteer roles were seen as non-essential and were stopped during the lockdown on public health grounds. The questions on it continue this year, I think we should ask why that’s the case and what it says about our system of parliamentary questions.
