Both of the country’s leading political parties will begin negotiations to renew the current confidence and supply agreement later today.
The discussions which are expected to last a number of weeks will see representatives from Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil set out a number of policies that will see the current agreement last for another two years.
Although Fine Gael have been keen to tie up an agreement in recent weeks, Fianna Fáil have said they will not be rushed into making an agreement.
It is expected that talks between the two parties will lead to an overall agreement as both the Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and Fianna Fáil leader Mícheál Martin have reiterated that they are willing to work out a deal in order to avoid another General Election.
Fianna Fáil have previously stated that the Irish people require stability especially during what could be a difficult Brexit negotiation process.
