Taoiseach Enda Kenny performs U-turn and now says he will contest the next election

In an astonishing revelation, Taoiseach Enda Kenny has said that he will indeed contest the next election, despite earlier claims to the contrary.

The news comes as a shock to most, as it was widely anticipated that Mr. Kenny would step down sooner, rather than later.

A committee had already been setup to decide who would be best person to replace him, and Mr. Kenny’s daughter, Aoibhinn, had been named as favorite. But now, Fine Gael sources say that the committee’s intention was to deal with local elections in three years’ time, rather than to iron out the details of Mr. Kenny’s departure.
