The people have had enough… at least for now. Enda Kenny is on his way to the Aras to officially resign as Taoiseach tonight.
The 64-yr-old was one of four candidates fighting for the position Prime Minister of Ireland today, neither he or any of the other candidates managed to get enough votes to secure the role of Taoiseach.
With 57 votes, Kenny fell short or a majority and along with Micheal Martin, Gerry Adams and even the extreme left wing politician Richard Boyd Barrett thrown into the mix, the eventful day is about to end on what many feel to be a great high – Enda Kenny’s resignation.
“Let me assure the Irish people that a government remains in place and that I and the cabinet will continue to work hard until a new government is in place”.
The Dail will resume proceedings on March 22nd, and from there – it’s anyone’s guess as to what the next government will be made up of.
