Stop RTE from supporting Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil in General Election

Stop RTE from supporting Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil in General Election

We are calling on RTE to allow all leaders of all political parties to take part in the second televised debate on RTE. Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil should not be the only ones represented, as their vote combined was less than 50% of the total vote cast by Irish people in the 2016 general election.

Why is this important?

RTE is the national broadcaster and it should live up to its responsibilities as a neutral actor and not show favor towards particular political parties.
