Fianna Fail candidate for Europe backs party’s change to voting strategy

A Fianna Fail candidate for Europe says it’s not unusual for a party to review its canvassing strategy close to polling day.

Sitting Fianna Fail TD in Cavan and Monaghan Brendan Smith explained that the decision will allow the party to maximise its vote. Apart from the Cavan/Monaghan and Galway constituencies, both he and Anne Rabbitte are being allowed to seek first preference votes in all areas.

Speaking on The Joe Finnegan Show, Brendan Smith said he believes it’s the right decision.
