If the recent DCU referendum on a United Ireland was absolutely necessary, the option to abstain should have been included. Firstly, a vote of abstinence is not the same as not voting.

DCU Students’ Union voted in favour of supporting the reunification of Ireland on Friday.
DCU Students’ Union received a petition for a referendum on the university’s stance on a united Ireland last week.
