The Right2Change campaign says it has 96 candidates running in the general election who support their set of principles.

The group launched its campaign in Dublin this morning.

The Right2Change campaign has published a list of candidates who have endorsed the policy principles of the campaign.

The campaign grew out of the Right2Water protest, calling for the abolition of water charges - and it wants that done within the first 100 days of the new government.

Spokesperson is Brendan Ogle.

Sinn Féin makes up just over half of the candidates pledging to support the Rigth2Change principles.

Deputy leader of the party Mary Lou McDonald says the latest polls show Irish people want change in this election.

Among the Right2Change policy principles is a €6bn investment in water infrastructure.

Mandate Trade Union general secretary, and Right2Change spokesperson, John Douglas believes they can do well on polling day.

A Right2Change conference is scheduled for February 13th, where former Greek finance minister Yanis Varoufakis is among the speakers.

It will be followed by a pre-election rally on February 20th.
