New Sinn Féin MEP casts first vote from home

March 26, 2020

Ireland's newest MEP has cast his first vote in the European Parliament from his kitchen table in Co. Sligo.

COVID-19 travel restrictions mean that the majority of MEPs cannot attend a special plenary in Brussels to deal with the crisis.

It’s led to the Parliament taking the unprecedented step of rolling out remote voting.
