“The ongoing Nama scandal and allegations relating to it is one of the biggest blows to public confidence in local politics,” he said.
“Therefore it is disappointing no other leaders have responded yet to my request to meet and discuss the matter and how we can best deal with it. I believe only a fully independent investigation, above party politicking, can resolve the issue fully.
“I reiterate my call for the other party leaders to meet together and help create a resolution to the Nama matter. Only by doing so can we remove the whiff of corruption surrounding local politics.”
