In any case where an election agent is acting for more than one candidate, great care should be taken to ensure that separate records and accounts are kept for each candidate and that it is possible to apportion expenses between the different candidates where this is necessary.
If an election agent becomes aware that any person or group is incurring expenses promoting or opposing his or her candidate, or any other candidate, the agent should enquire of the Commission if that person or group has been given a certificate of authorisation by the Commission to incur election expenses in this way.
The election agents of candidates and the national agents of political parties must maintain a record of any sum disbursed by an individual pursuant to paragraph 2.26(iii) above, where it is not intended to include the expense in the Election Expenses Statement to be furnished to the Commission.

A major challenge facing political parties and the political process generally is to address this key issue of the lack of fairness in the distribution of the fruits of economic growth.
The challenge during this General Election is to put poverty, inequality, social exclusion and sustainability on the General Election agenda.

 Ahern Wins Irish Election but Falls Short of Majority   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
DUBLIN, Ireland -- Irish Prime Minister Bertie Ahern's Fianna Fail party was on track Sunday for a sweeping victory -- but just short of the predicted overall majority -- in an Irish general election that also saw big gains for Sinn Fein.
The election, held Friday, has changed Ireland's political landscape, voters delivering a devastating blow to the main opposition party Fine Gael and a significant breakthrough to Sinn Fein, the political wing of the Irish Republican Army.
The party, which is dedicated to ending British rule in Northern Ireland, has reinvented itself as a radical social crusader in the Irish republic, focusing on issues such as drugs, crime and poverty, and targeting the younger vote.

 Irish Times Article - Government regains support as Kenny steps out of shadows   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
The Coalition is showing clear signs of recovery as voter satisfaction ratings for the Government, Taoiseach and Tánaiste increase to their highest levels since before the 2002 general election, writes Mark Brennock, Chief Political Correspondent.
The result of the June local government elections was: Fianna Fáil 31.9 per cent; Fine Gael 27.4 per cent; Labour 11.3 per cent; Sinn Féin 8 per cent; Progressive Democrats 3.8 per cent; Green Party, 3.7 per cent; Others, 13.9 per cent.
Although more voters still disapprove of the Government than approve of it, and Fianna Fáil's rating would still lose it seats in a general election, this poll suggests the Government and party may have begun to regain lost public support.
