They claim they will be accepting submissions from anyone...
The Labour document says the new constitutional convention would include experts and specialists, as well as ordinary citizens drawn by lot. It would have an open mandate, and no part of the existing 1937 Constitution would be exempt from consideration. It would be asked to prepare a draft constitution within one year.
I'd happily get involved in a submission, but wouldn't have the expertise to do one on my own. I think we should definately make a submission if this comes about. Although I think we'd need to be realistic in our suggestions. The references to god and religion will not be a high priority given that the they want to reform/ abolish the Seanad as part of the review; meaning that it's something they would want to get passed in a referendum. Anything too drastic which could run the risk of not being passed will likely not be included.
What issues in relation to the constitution do people here think are more important?
Is there anythnig in the constitution in realtion to education? If so this would be my number one.
