Former Irish PM, Bertie Ahern, rules out run for Dublin mayor

Considered by many as the architect of Ireland’s particularly deep recession, former Irish Prime Minister (Taoiseach) Bertie Ahern, has ruled out running to be first directly elected mayor of the state’s capital, Dublin.

When questioned Tuesday on the issue, Mr Ahern gave an emphatic no when asked if he would be running.

Many commentators believe that Mr Ahern, once considered a hero in his Dublin city constituency, would be embarrassed in any election considering his brother, Maurice, achieved his political party’s worst ever result in an election for the national parliament last June.

Once tipped as a possible European commission president during Ireland’s economic bubble, Mr Ahern,  is keeping his options open on running for President of Ireland next year; He refused to rule out running when asked on the subject.
