Hazel Chu To Contest By Election In Dublin Bay South

Dublin Lord Mayor and Green Party Chairperson Hazel Chu has confirmed she's making a bid for a Dail seat.

Councillor Chu is seeking a nomination from the Green Party to run in the Dublin Bay South by-election, triggered by the resignation of Fine Gael's Eoghan Murphy.

The move comes just weeks after her unsuccessful bid for the Seanad by-election, where she ran as an Independent.

Hazel Chu says she wants to make sure there is diversity on the ticket.
