INDEPENDENT SENATOR RONAN Mullen has claimed that most of his colleagues in Leinster House will vote against the same-sex marriage referendum.

Despite all four main parties coming out in support of a Yes vote in the 22 May referendum, Mullen claimed in an interview with TheJournal.ie that he would “guess” that most TDs would vote against it.

Mullen, who is campaigning for a No vote, also claimed that he has received “soft support” for his views amongst Dáil and Seanad colleagues. He cited a Fine Gael senator who he said told him yesterday:

“You know, there’s not much I can do during the debate but you know which way I’ll be voting.”

Watch Mullen explain why he thinks most politicians will be voting No and his response when we asked him to name some of them:
