A man seeking leave to challenge the result of the abortion referendum has claimed the Taoiseach and Minister for Health had made “misleading” statements which “duped” some people into voting Yes and “materially affected” the outcome.
Charles Byrne claims Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and Minister for Health Simon Harris were not permitted under the Constitution to advocate for a Yes vote and made statements which impermissibly interfered with the conduct of the referendum.
