Howlin’s future as Labour Party leader is looking more uncertain as fresh calls are made for a change in leadership

Labor Party leader Brendan Howlin has come under increased pressure this week after another party TD called for a change in leadership.

Mr Howlin who has faced three previous calls is now all but certain to be replaced as the party leader with further growing unrest within the party.

The latest call for change comes from South Dublin County Councillor Pamela Kearns who said the party is in need of fresh change and approach.

It is believed that Ms Kearns who praised Mr Howlin for his leadership has backed previous calls from fellow party members who have suggested that the party’s Health Spokesman Alan Kelly should take over the reigns.

Although Mr Howlin is yet to be officially replaced, it is believed that a number of party members are looking to change the party’s image following poor results in voter opinion polls.

The party was found to have its lowest ever approval rating with just 3% of voters willing to vote for the party if a General Election were to occur.
