INDEPENDENT TD Maureen O’Sullivan will today delcare her intentions to run for the position of Ceann Comhairle ahead of Thursday’s vote.
Ms O’Sullivan is in a strong position to be elected as long as she can secure transfers from other candidates.
Fianna Fáil has opted to run party whip Séan Ó Fearghaíl, while Sinn Féin is to field its health spokesperson Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin.
Fine Gael may run a number of candidates, including Wicklow/East Carlow TD Andrew Doyle and Kildare North deputy Bernard Durkan.
