The Labour Party could soon see a change in leadership as the current leader Brendan Howlin has come under pressure to step down following poor voter poll ratings.
Although Mr Howlin is yet to face a mas revolt within the party, his position has already been put into question by Laois councillor Noel Tuohy.
According to RTÉ News, Mr Tuohy who said he has no personal issues with Mr Howlin, has claimed the party needs a change of leadership in order to avoid sleeping walking into oblivion.
The Laois councillor believes a change is needed in order to reconnect with voters and has suggested that Mr Howlin should step down in order for the party’s health spokesperson Alan Kelly to take the reigns.
It is thought Mr Howlin has come under increased pressure after recent voter polls have shown that 3% of voters would vote for the party.
