Immigrants urged to participate in politics

A campaign is being launched today which it is claimed could see tens of thousands of members of ethnic communities register to vote in next year's local elections.

The campaign, organised by the Africa Centre and New Community Partnership, is part of a wider campaign which includes voter education, and also a call to engage and participate in the 2009 local elections, be it as a voter or a candidate.

Non-nationals should never be allowed vote, nevermind run for election. They will be looking after their own interests and not the interests of the Irish nation.
