Calls for change within the Labour Party grow as fifth councillor calls for leadership contest

The Labour Party has recieved a fresh call for a leadership change despite previous calls for support for current leader Brendan Howlin.

Following week’s of uncertainty within the party, it seems that not everyone agrees that the current party leader should remain in charge.

The latest call which is the fifth call within several weeks comes from Councillor Martina Genockey, from the Dublin South-West constituency.

Ms Genockey who strongly disagrees with the recommendations of 16 fellow party members, has said she believes a leadership contest should be called.

The Dublin South-West councillor also said a leadership contest would determine the best course of action on how the party could get back on track.

Although no leadership contest has been called, the latest call could very well put further pressure on Mr Howlin who was just given a strong vote of confidence by 16 of his party members.
