Brexit no excuse for failing to hold general election

A Sligo Leitrim TD has accused the two main political parties of using Brexit for an excuse for not going to the Country.

The Sinn Fein Spokesperson on justice and equality, Deputy martin Kenny has criticised both Fine Gael and Fianna Fail for hiding behind Brexit and not calling a general election.

Deputy Kenny dismisses the notion that after the events in the recent UK election, an election is likely to follow here in early 2020.

Speaking to OceanFM news Martin Kennys says that it makes no sense why an election can’t take place here while two were held in the UK where Brexit is a much greater issue.
