The Programme for Government contains a commitment that the Government will establish a Constitutional Convention with a brief to consider and report within 12 months on, among other items, review of the Dáil electoral system and reducing the voting age to 17. The Taoiseach will shortly be meeting the Opposition to consult them on the Government’s proposals for the structure, operation and membership of the Convention.
