The Argus - - FRONT PAGE - By OLIVIA RYAN

LOUTH vot­ers are brac­ing for a snap gen­eral elec­tion, ex­pected to be called in the com­ing days, as the list of de­clared can­di­dates emerged across the county.

With a date in the first two weeks in Fe­bru­ary, ei­ther 7th or 14th, ru­moured to be named for GE2020, Louth’s can­di­dates are ramp­ing up their re­spec­tive cam­paigns.

All the main po­lit­i­cal par­ties have con­firmed their can­di­dates in north and south Louth.

Cur­rently there is just one in­de­pen­dent can­di­date run­ning in the Dun­dalk area.

But with an elec­tion not yet of­fi­cially called, it is still early days , and other names are likely to be added to the bal­lot in the com­ing weeks.

Taoiseach Leo Varad­kar con­firmed he has se­lected a date for the elec­tion, but would not be an­nounc­ing it as yet. The Dail is still ex­pected to re­con­vene to­mor­row ( Wed­nes­day) fol­low­ing the Christ­mas break.
