Mara must resign from Fianna Fáil
Sinn Fein TD Seán Crowe has said it is not enough that P J Mara resigns his post from the Fianna Fail Nice campaign, but that he must now resign any office he holds in Fianna Fáil.
Deputy Crowe said:
``It is not enough that P J Mara resigns his post from the Fianna Fail Nice campaign. It is only fitting that Mr Mara also resign from any office he holds in Fianna Fail and that he provides a complete explanation of why he failed to co-operate fully with the Flood Tribunal and deals more fully with the conflicts of evidence outlined in the Flood report.
``Mara's resignation is not just an indictment of his wrongdoing and deception, it also reflects very seriously on Fianna Fail and their record in office.
``P J Mara's national role within Fianna Fail over the last 30 years has meant that he has been at the centre of Fianna Fail strategy and policy. Like Ray Burke, it was only when the case against him was overwhelming that he was forced from office and as in their stubborn support for Ray Burke the leadership of Fianna Fail have failed to ensure that those who hold public office for the party adhere to the highest standards in public life.''
