    LONDON (Reuters) - British home improvement retailer Kingfisher (KGF.L) on Wednesday reported a 6.4% fall in underlying first half profit, mainly hurt by the weak performance of its French operation, underlining the task ahead for its new chief executive.

    Kingfisher is in the fourth year of a five-year programme that was designed to boost earnings. However, profits went backwards in 2018-19 and the group said in March it would part company with Véronique Laury, its CEO since 2014.

    She exits next week and will be succeeded by Carrefour veteran Thierry Garnier.

    Kingfisher’s shares have fallen 24% over the last year and some analysts believe the firm is vulnerable to a possible bid from private equity.

    The group, whose main businesses are B&Q and Screwfix inBritain and Castorama and Brico Depot in France and elsewhere, said it made an underlying pretax profit of...

    The Government has published the Bill to pave the way for a referendum allowing emigrants to vote in presidential elections, but there is increasing doubt that it will take place in November as intended.

    The Bill, which would allow citizens resident abroad to vote, must first be passed by the Dáil and Seanad before a referendum can be held.

    It is likely to be debated by TDs and Senators in the coming weeks.

    The proposal – approved by the constitutional convention in 2013 – would only see emigrants and citizens abroad and in the North given the right to vote in presidential elections, rather than in all elections.
