Garda Representative Association unanimously votes “no confidence” in Garda Commissioner
The Garda Representative Association has unanimously voted no confidence in the Garda Commissioner.
Of the 10 thousand 800 members, 84 per cent used their vote, and 98 point 7 per cent voted “no” when asked if they have confidence in Drew Harris.
It’s the first time in the 100 years of An Garda Síochána that the force has voted no confidence in a Garda Commissioner.
Previously, Drew Harris said he will not resign regardless of the outcome of the vote.
GRA General Secretary Ronan Slevin has just announced the results:
“9013 of those polled answered no, which is 98.7% that they do not have confidence in Garda Commissioner Drew Harris. This accounted for the largest return for a ballot in the history of the GRA we as an association have lost confidence in the direction of where policing is being led in this country.”
