Leaflet from James Lawless -Fianna Fail Committee of Twenty elections 2012 Ard-Fheis February 20, 2012

From the campaign for the Committee of Twenty elections at this year’s Fianna Fail Ard-Fheis a leaflet from candidate James Lawless.  His Website

Many Thanks to the sender who notes…
“The committee is a long standing one and originated as 15 members elected from the ordinary membership. This was DeValera’s creation as he wanted ensure the cabinet / hierarchy remained in touch with the party faithful.
Over recent times the national executive grew extra layers and is now a much larger body and likely to be reformed in terms of composition and numbers over the new term. However it is likely the committee of 20/15 will be retained as it is unique in being the only component of the executive elected by open election across the national party.

The committee of 15 was increased to the committee of 20 with the introduction of gender quotas a few years back and now must contain 10 men and 10 women, all elected via a single ballot paper with a complex count/quota system.”
