The goal of Direct Democracy Ireland organisation is to create a political party that will field candidates, in all constituencies, in the next General Election. The aim of Direct Democracy Ireland is to introduce a system of direct democracy in Ireland, which will entail, at a minimum, the right of the people to:
– Any citizen can collect a certain number of signatures, (a certain % of the population), to call a referendum.
– The referendum will empower the people to negate Ministerial decisions, or Government legislation, such as NAMA.
– A mechanism will also be introduced whereby politicians can be ‘fired’ if they are not performing their job to the satisfaction of the electorate.
