The Government is facing renewed calls for clarity on the details of the upcoming gender equality referendums.
The Citizens’ Assembly on Gender Equality called for Article 41.2 which recognises a woman’s “life within the home” to be removed and replaced.
The Government had previously said polling would take place in November but the wording of the referendums have yet to be published.
Speaking to Newstalk, Oireachtas Equality Gender Committee Chair Ivana Bacik said the hold-up is unnecessary.
“We don’t understand the delay from Government in publishing the wording,” she said.
“We on the Committee produced a clear wording to be put to the people with cross-party support that every member of the Committee signed up to and we put it to Government last December.
“We were promised that by the end of the summer term - that is back in July - we would see the Government’s own version of the wording or whether they approved ours or not.”
SIPTU, the National Women’s Council of Ireland and Family Carers’ Ireland are meeting today and will call on the Government to publish the wording of the referendums and commit to a polling day.
Irish citizens who are on the electoral register and aged over 18 will be eligible to vote in the referendums - if and when they are held.
