Government is committed to going ‘full term’ amid election speculation, says Tanaiste

Tánaiste Micheál Martin has denied rumours of an early general election, insisting instead that the Coalition leaders are still dedicated to serving out their whole terms, reports Breaking News.

The head of Fianna Fáil stated that the government will continue to prioritise delivering the budget, even in the face of growing interest in the possibility of an earlier than anticipated election day.

Ireland’s local and European election vote tallying process got underway again on Monday. The first-ever directly elected mayor of Ireland began counting votes in Limerick on Monday, reports Breaking News.

The political implications of the results thus far have caused serious concerns for the leaders of the major parties, even though it may still take days to complete the tally of every vote cast nationwide.

After outperforming many pollsters’ predictions, the Coalition partners now have the potentially attractive option of holding an early general election.

Meanwhile, following a dismal showing in the elections, Sinn Féin has already declared an internal review. Mary Lou McDonald, the leader, expressed regret about the outcome, reports Breaking News.

While Sinn Féin received over 30% of the vote in certain opinion surveys conducted last year, the party received just 12% of first preference votes in Friday’s local government elections.

Although it was slightly higher than its performance in the most recent local council election in 2019, the outcome falls far short of the party’s expectations, reports Breaking News.
