Should Michael D Higgins seek a second term as President? We hit the streets to ask

MICHAEL D HIGGINS has confirmed he will seek a second term in the Áras, as had been widely expected.

The President said on the night of his election in 2011 that he did not intend to seek a second term, but his position has shifted in recent years.

We took to the streets of Dublin today to ask what people thought of today’s announcement.
