Presidential hopeful Kevin Sharkey has pulled out of the race for the Aras.
Mr. Sharkey an artist raised in Killybegs in county Donegal confirmed he’s pulling out of the race claiming on his facebook page that it’s a ‘farce’.
He says he’s withdrawing from the presidential race due to what he claims is ‘the Corruption of the local councils all over Ireland’.
He has thanked any Councillors that did pledge their support to him and asked that they transfer that vote to journalist Gemma O’Doherty who is hoping to secure a nomination to run.
He told Sligo County Council last week that the drugs issue targeting vulnerable young people had to be addressed.
He also reiterated his calls for serious sanctions for anyone who attacks an elderly person in their home stating that older people right around the country are living in fear:
Yesterday, Sinn Fein confirmed that Liagh Ni Riada would be their candidate to contest the presidential election which takes place on the 26th October.
Mr. Sharkey used the opportunity to highlight a new collection he has which is based on the theme of the Presidential Election and Corruption.
