Elections

The Christian Centrist Party was a short lived conservative Christian political party in Ireland. It stood and endorsed a number of candidates at the 1991 local elections and at the 1992 general election.

Candidates included party members Eammon Murphy[1] who stood in Dublin South Central, Patrick Doherty in Donegal North East, Joe MacDonough in Dublin North West, Gerry Duffy in Cork North Central and endorsing independent councillor Richard Greene in Dublin South.[2]

The oficial Christian Centrist Party candidates polled only 3,443 first preference votes 0.2% of the overall vote at the 1992 general election[3] and the party faded away. A number of its members and candidates would move on and be active as independents in other minor conservative parties such as Muintir na hÉireann and the Christian Solidarity Party. The party name was used in an 1998 submission to Dáíl working group supporting a ban on Abortion.
