The Government has bowed to pressure and postponed the local elections until next year
Right up until Friday’s welcome u-turn, the Government had seemed determined to plough on with the local elections, despite the fact that they would be taking place whilst the covid-19 virus was at its height.
But the election campaign would have involved politicians knocking on doors, the day itself would have brought people together for voting, and the count would have involved thousands of people nationwide spending time together in an enclosed environment for several hours.
In other words, the elections would have given the virus a boost. More people would have become infected. More people would have died.
We will continue to deliver our FOCUS leaflets this month whilst it is still safe to do so, but paused our delivering this weekend to prepare a message to residents regarding the postponed elections.
We are in unprecedented times and we all have to be careful.
