Referendum Commission launches its Public Information Campaign
The Referendum Commission has launched its public information campaign to explain the Fiscal Stability Treaty and to urge people throughout the State to vote. The Commission Chairperson Judge Kevin Feeney said that its factual Guide to the Treaty would be delivered to all homes between May 8th and May 18th, and that the people of Waterford City and County would receive it during that time.
"The Referendum Commission is obliged by law to give a neutral and factual explanation of the Treaty and that is what we will do", said Judge Feeney at the launch. "Over the next two weeks we will deliver a factual Guide to the Treaty to every home in the State; run advertising on television, radio, in newspapers and online; explain important issues as they arise; and use social media to encourage people to check to ensure they are registered to vote and to vote.
"The Treaty is relatively short and relatively understandable compared to previous referendum proposals. As well as reading our factual information, voters can help make up their minds by listening to the strong arguments that will be made in favour of and against the proposal through the media during the campaign. National, regional and local media will play a crucial role in explaining the Treaty and giving a platform to supporters and opponents of the Treaty."
