Just got this statement.
Donegal Sinn Féin Senator Pearse Doherty is in the High Court this morning seeking leave for a judicial review into the failure of the government to hold the Donegal South West by-election.*****
If leave is granted this will be a first step in the battle to force the government to hold the by-election.
Senator Doherty will be available to speak to the media outside the High Court, following the courts decision at approximately 1pm. He will be accompanied by Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams and the party's Dáil Group Leader Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin TD.
