THE COVERT removal of election posters was condemned at last week’s meeting of Wicklow County Council. Cllr. John Byrne said, ‘It has come to my attention that members of some political parties were removing posters and that should be condemned. It is contrary to proper democracy. We are here giving out about the returning officer but how we behaved also needs to be looked at.’
Cllr. Tom Fortune said he was aware of people who had removed his posters in the run up to the election but ‘I can’t prove it’.
