Senator Paul Bradford - and the husband of Lucinda Creighton - said he has not yet decided whether he will run for a seat in the Dáil when his wife sets up her new party.
Ms Creighton announced earlier this week that she will be establishing a new political party, which will run a candidate in every constituency for the next General Election.
Independent Senator Paul Bradford, said he has seen media reports claiming he would or wouldn't run, but has yet to decide if he wants to put his name on the ticket.
"I'll certainly have to give it very serious consideration," he said. "I can't ask others to step up to the mark and refuse to do so myself. But that's for later in the year to decide."
The party is due to be officially launched in eight week's time.
