Senator Higgins was re-elected to Seanad Éireann on the NUI panel.

After her election, she said, "Heartfelt thanks to everyone who supported my campaign for Seanad Éireann - the nominators, assentors, volunteers, campaigners and everyone who entrusted me with their vote." 

"I promise to be a strong and progressive voice for equality, environment, human rights & public services in the challenging times ahead. Well done also to some other great candidates who were unsuccessful on this occasion."

Seanad 100 and Seanad Reform

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the creation of Seanad Éireann and there have been many events to mark the occasion and reflect upon the Seanad’s contribution to public life in Ireland, particularly its track record as a platform for minority voices and a driver of major social change. One focus for me has been the need to reform the Seanad electoral franchise so that all citizens have the right to vote for their Senators and help shape the next 100 years.
