Directly elected mayors are needed in cities to give leadership on the housing crisis, according to the Green Party.
They’ve criticised delayed plans to provide a directly elected mayor in Dublin.
Eamon Ryan says they should also be considered in Waterford, Cork, Limerick and Galway.
The Green Party leader says one mayor chosen by the people could get civil servants working harder: “We need real leadership which has a mandate to tackle the housing crisis. You cannot get that when you have four different City Managers who are not elected. We need a mayor sort out the housing crisis, we need a mayor to sort out the transport crisis.”
