Tanaiste dismisses Alex White’s suggestions of a pre-election pact between Fine Gael and Labour

Sources close to the Tanaiste Joan Burton have today dismissed the claims made by Communications Minister Alex White of a pre-election pact between Labour and Fine Gael, saying there is “little chance” of that happening.

Instead, it has been suggested that there may be an arrangement on voting transfers during the closing stages of the election campaign.

Mr. White made clear calls on election pact between both coalition parties during comments made last weekend.

He said “When you look at what we have achieved in Government over the past four-and-a-half years, which has been enormous, I think there is a very strong case indeed for there to be an accommodation between ourselves, the governing parties, to ensure what we have achieved can be built upon in the years ahead.”
