Enda Kenny: Politics must do more with less – so Seanad has to go

THE people of Ireland will decide the future of the Seanad on Friday. This is because the Constitution belongs to the people and changing it is up to them, not anyone in the Government, in the Dail or in the Seanad.
This referendum is the ultimate example of "power to the people". What could be more democratic than to ask the people for their decision?
I made a commitment to give people their say on the abolition of the Seanad before the last general election. This referendum delivers on that promise. And it does so in the clearest possible way with a simple choice – vote Yes to abolish the Seanad or vote No to keep it.
