Citizens Assembly Meets For First Time

The Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams has criticised the structure of the Citizens’ Assembly which meets for the first time today.

Taoiseach Enda Kenny will launch the body which is made up of 99 randomly-selected Irish citizens and will look at a number of constitutional issues including the 8th amendment.

Mr Adams says politicians and people from the north should have been involved in the assembly.

Meanwhile, the pro-life campaign group the Life Institute says it’s concerned that the assembly has a foregone conclusion to call for a referendum on the 8th Amendment.
