ICCL has made a submission to the Department of Housing and Local Government’s public consultation on the establishment of an Electoral Commission.

We call for this body to be entirely independent of government, and that this should be guaranteed through primary legislation and direct funding from the exchequer.
We also believe the establishment of an Electoral Commission would present an important opportunity to amend problematic legislation on international funding for civil society.
