Irish voters could be going back to the polls as Fine Gael all but rules out any coalition talks




 

Another General Election could yet soon be a reality as Fine Gael have reportedly all but ruled out a coalition with Sinn Féin or Fianna Fáil.

Speaking on Monday, the Taoiseach Leo Varadkar said that his party are ready to go into opposition and they will only form a coalition as a last resort.

The Taoiseach who was speaking on RTÉ’s Six One News, said that the onus is now clearly in Sinn Féin to form a government as they are the largest party.

Varadkar’s comments could now very well mean that voters could be going back to the polls as Mary Lou McDonald’s party are finding it increasingly difficult to form a Government with both Sinn Féin, Fianna Fáil and Labour ruling themselves out of forming a coalition with the party.

Although Sinn Féin could potentially persuade Independent TD’s, the Green Party, Social Democrats and Solidarity People Before Profit to form a left wing led government, it is thought that such a coalition would fall short of the required 80 seats to form a minority led government.
